No US Passport, No Entry to US; No Faith in Christ, No Entry to the Pearly Gates of Heaven
Salvation is indeed God’s free gift for you and for me, for our loved ones, for our friends, for our neighbors, for our co-workers and for everyone.

Romans 6:23 says, “Sin pays off with death. But God’s gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord” (CEV). This is the reason why we need to herald the Gospel to all mankind which is the Apostle Paul’s passion since he met Christ in the Road to Damascus. He wrote in 1Corinthians 9:22 saying, “Yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so that he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him” (LB).

Believe it and receive it now and not tomorrow for tomorrow may no longer come. It’s our most precious gift on earth as our only passport to enter the Pearly Gates of Heaven. “For God says, ‘Your cry came to me at a favorable time, when the doors of welcome were wide open. I helped you on a day when salvation was being offered.” Right now God is ready to welcome you. Today He is ready to save you.’” (2Corinthians 6:2). Taking it from NIV, it says, “For he says, ‘In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.’[a] I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”

1Timothy 1:15 is so profound to understand why the Bible is everybody’s Good News. It says, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. This saying is true, and it can be trusted. I was the worst sinner of all!”

Though the Bible was written in different versions but it only shows God’s marvelous works in making His Word understandable to everyone by making it simpler and easier to read so as not to confuse people as what the world says.

This truth from the Scripture is telling the whole world to receive this Good News now because after death, there’s no other way a sinner like me can be saved. No amount of prayer nor any good work on earth can save a person when it’s your time to face God in His Judgment Seat. Today is the day to be saved not tomorrow. Without a passport which is our faith in Christ, there’s no way to enter heaven just like a Filipino who has no US passport, he or she can never enter US. A person will suffer the rising torment in hell forever not because he or she is a sinner but it’s all because they rejected the Good News. No amount of saying “Rest in Peace” can save a dead person if that person does not carry Heaven’s Passport of Faith.

“We die only once, and then we are judged” (Hebrews 9:27, CEV).
