Every year, the owners of our establishment give a big outdoor picnic. Everyone is invited. They put up big tents and set up chairs and offer a great dinner to all the residents. It’s no little undertaking either because we have almost 2000 residents living here.
However, there is a catch. You must have a ticket, and the tickets are free. Still, some people aren’t welcome at the event. Why might you ask? They are not welcome because they don’t have a ticket!
Isn’t that just like heaven? We are all invited but some of us are never going to get in. Why; because we never bothered getting the free ticket!
The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”(Matthew 4:16-18, NIV)
It’s not hard to get a free ticket. They are available anywhere and at any time. Do word searches on “Salvation Prayer.” It’s all there for your praying of it.
Prayer- Lord, I write the salvation prayer here repeatedly, but for those who love their app more than life, show it up on their phones in a most miraculous way and make their hearts see it for themselves. Amen.
