One day a gentleman who was in deep distress came to see me. He thought that it was his good works that would get him into heaven. After explaining God's plan of salvation to him, he asked, "Do you mean that I can actually be saved by faith through grace alone?"
"Yes," I answered. "When you board an airplane, what do the people at the gate ask for?" "My boarding pass," he answered.
"Correct," I replied. "Your boarding pass proves that you have met the conditions to board the aircraft."
Our "boarding pass" for heaven is our faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible plainly states that "By grace you have been saved through faith, not of your works, it is a gift from God lest anyone should boast."
Placing our faith in God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as our Savior assures us of our "boarding pass" into eternity with Him. Do you have yours ready?
