Mar 07 – Wrong Train

It doesn’t much matter…” the railway man said, when asked by a traveler, where to sit on the train he was hoping to take to Montreal. The official then explained, “ because this train isn’t going to Montreal.” Presumably he got off that wrong train. Sometimes we’re like that man. We ask God, “which car should I get on to go to heaven- giving money to charity? Doing kind deeds to others? Going to church regularly? Baptism? The answer, is “ It doesn’t much matter, because those trains are not going to heaven.” True, those “cars” are important and we should travel on them here on earth, but they’re not going to take us to heaven. That’s because God’s Book tells us, it’s’“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy that He saves us.” And Jesus made it even plainer when He said, “No one comes to the Father except through me.”
