In this “works based” world of being good enough, there is a question that is always hovering in the back of the minds of those who have this belief and that is : have I been “Good Enough”?, to avoid hell and eventually see heaven. Most do not even want to consider that possibility and avoid even thinking about it. They often consider, at least sub-consciously that they are “good enough” because they do good things, or they are better than their neighbor, in their own minds. But the bottom line is this : How do I really know for sure? The fact is, is that they can not know! They are likely to say, if asked, I am a good person, I have never killed anyone or they have not broken many of the 10 commandments. They do not want to believe that the Bible is God‘s Inspired Word and must be taken seriously! If asked, they have their share of excuses why God should let them into “His Heaven“. What do you believe? Are you “good enough”? If you are not very familiar with the Bible then you probably think that you are pretty good, don’t you? I would like for you to consider what God has to say about this matter. God says that “He alone is Good”. Did you know that? Then where does that leave you if you are not good? It leaves you without any hope at all! Your only hope is to do exactly what God says that we must do! Are you even a little bit interested in knowing what that is! I hope that by now, you are very interested and wish that I would get to the point. I am now ready to tell you. It is a “free gift”! That’s right, it is free but there is a catch. You must believe by “Real Faith”, with all of your heart, soul and strength that Jesus is exactly what He and the rest of the Bible says that He is. For that “faith” is like the “faith of Abraham‘ who was ready to kill his only beloved, promised son because he trusted God and believed by faith that God was able and willing to actually raise his son Isaac from the dead! This episode can be found in Genesis, Chapter 22. Now do you understand how important it is to trust God by Faith? It is not an easy thing to do. Not at all, yet it is necessary to believe with the simple faith of a child! Children are very trusting when they are very young and we are told by Christ that we MUST have that kind of faith! Do I possess that kind of faith? Not always! Trusting God can be a very difficult thing to do especially when suffering and pain and disappointment and many other kinds of struggles enter into our lives. I am going through those kinds of things now and my faith has been weak and I am struggling to overcome my doubts! The Christian life can be and is very difficult at times. Are YOU ready to have the kind of “Saving Faith” that is necessary to escape the horrors of an eternity in HELL? Let me encourage you to do it now because you could die tonight!!! Remember, God knows the number of hairs on our heads and He also knows the number of days that we will have on this Earth! Receive the Salvation that Christ offers through His Death, Burial and resurrection and Ascension back to the right hand of The Father on The Throne of Glory in Heaven!
