I returned home and reached for my key to enter. It wasn’t in my purse where I thought I had put it. No matter how I searched for it, wished for it or prayed, I couldn’t get in my door without it! Keys provide entrance, that’s a fact. But you might say, I can’t get into the theatre with a key.

There are different kinds of keys. We have metal keys to open metal locks. Tickets to enter a theatre, zoo, state parks, etc.An identification pass to go through a security check point. There is even the key of love to enter another persons heart.

We plan for and obtained the keys or tickets necessary to enter the places we are headed for through our day. Yet, because of our own carelessness we can sometimes be locked out.

If you are expecting to go to heaven when your life here on earth is finished, how do you plan to get in? Do you have your Key, Ticket, or Identification Pass?

If you are not sure of what you will need to enter, or how to obtain it, the Bible gives us the answer. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh to the Father but by me”. He literally gave His life on the cross to purchase the ticket for our entrance.

The key of access into heaven is a FREE GIFT, but gifts are free, only to the person who receives them. Gifts are always paid for by someone. Jesus paid a great price for the gift he will give to anyone who will take it. Have you ever been given a gift, and then told the giver that you didn’t want it?

In John 3:16 God explains why he gave that gift for us. “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

The entrance ticket has been paid for and is
available to any who wish to accept it.
The Choice, of course, is personal.
