Making all these preparations to travel made me think. We've been thinking about this trip for days. Everyone has been deciding what to take, what to pack it in, and most importantly, how can we fit in all our paraphernalia [I love that word!] for five people in one trunk.
Aren't you glad we only have one thing to prepare for to make it to heaven? I'm glad I don't have to pay to get into heaven -- I have trouble saving up money as it is. I'm glad I don't have to be thin to get into heaven since I've already admitted that I'm going to Florida with more of me to love. I don't have to worry about reliable transportation to make it there. Why, I don't even have to be dressed in a cute shirt or have my hair just right! All I need is to be sure that my name is written in the Lamb's book of life. And really, He has made it so easy for me. He has done all the hard work, my work is just to believe.
Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
