WHY SHOULD I LET YOU INTO HEAVEN?


If you were to die today and God were to ask you, 'Why should I let you into my heaven?' what would you say?" Over the years I would have to say that 85% of the answers I get are "I have tried to be a good person, I have tried to be a good parent, I have tried to go to church and teach Sunday school and I have tried to give money to the poor." The key words in all these answer are I HAVE TRIED.


Instead of me telling you that answer is wrong, I am going to tell you that I have good news for you and that is "Heaven is a free gift."


Romans 3:23 says that "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Now if someone were to give you a gift and you tried to pay even a penny for it then it would not be a gift anymore, would it? Of course not. But in this world we associate all good things with something that we either have to work hard for or sacrifice a lot to get. It is hard to wrap our minds around heaven as free. Well it is free to us but cost Someone His life.
