Widow throws party to find place in heaven

This headline screamed out to me as I scanned the news.


A very wealthy 80-year-old widow in India spent thousands on a two day party for more than 100,000 people. Why? She hopes it pleases God, who will “open the doors of Heaven to her”.

What a sad story. I am so glad it doesn’t work that way. It’s interesting how complicated we try to make it. All her effort, time and money wasted. You cannot buy your way into Heaven. You don’t earn entrance via favor. Salvation is a gift from God. It’s free!!!

Eph 2:8 You were saved by faith in God, who treats us much better than we deserve. This is God's gift to you, and not anything you have done on your own.
Eph 2:9 It isn't something you have earned, so there is nothing you can brag about.

It is that simple which works out great, because I am not rich enough in earthly terms and I promise I will do something dumb every day that would keep me out. So I could never “earn it” Fortunately, God offers forgiveness of our sins through grace. He washes them clean. Gone ! Deleted! Never remembered again. All you have to do is ask.

Entry to heaven is free. You can receive it right now by faith through prayer: All you have to do is pray this prayer

"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be."

Did you pray this prayer? Did you mean it? If you did Christ will come into your life, as He promised.
[Christ speaking] "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him" (Revelation 3:20).
