Heaven’s entrance requirement

Occasionally, cartoonists speak the truth. The writer and artist of Non-Sequitur comes close to the truth of Scripture with this comic.

In one sense, the author is expressing what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount.

Matthew 7:21–23 –  “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

On the Day of Judgment, there might be many people who know the language but who never really knew the Savior.

In another sense, the author misses the point completely. Good works and a consistent lifestyle will NOT get anyone into heaven. Only faith in Jesus Christ will enable anyone to enter God’s presence.

John 14:6 – Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Ephesians 2:8-9 – For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Resolve the matter of faith and forgiveness today. Don’t wait until you stand before God.

Last ditch counseling

Unfortunately, I’ve had some couples like this in my office. No matter what one agreed to do, it was too-little-too-late. Their mind was made up before they ever made the appointment.

If only this worked in real life, and especially, for sermon preparation . 😉 Unfortunately, there is no substitute for hard work.

How many people treat God

The creator of the comic strip Non-Sequitur accurately expresses how many people treat God–ignore his instructions, do whatever you want, and hopefully, he will go away.

Romans 1:18–19 – For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
