Only through Jesus

Read Ephesians 1:1 through 3:21

When Virginia needed transportation to an appointment, Debby volunteered to take her. Through the years their friendship blossomed and eventually their conversations included spiritual concerns.

When Debby talked about heaven, Virginia’s comment was always the same: “I hope I’m good enough to go to heaven.” Debby explained that it was impossible to earn a place in heaven. It was only through Jesus’ death, resurrection, and offer of salvation that anyone could enter heaven.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast (Ephesians 2:8–9).

Virginia is now in her mid-nineties. When asked about going to heaven, she no longer says, “I hope I’m good enough to go,” because Virginia now has assurance that through her acceptance of Jesus Christ she can say with a certainty, “I know I will go to heaven.”

You, too, can have that assurance. If you have not accepted Jesus’ offer of salvation, do so today.

Thought for Today: With Jesus all things are possible.
