He was really looking forward to seeing New Orleans, Louisiana USA. It was an all-expense paid business trip – then it hit him. He would not be going. What a disappointment! But he had nobody to blame but himself. He had neglected to get a passport. It is the same in regards to a trip we all hope to make one day, when our lives on earth are over. But sadly, some will not make that trip. They have neglected acquiring a passport to heaven. Many knew that Jesus had promised, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” They had intended to be ready for that inevitable trip. But they had neglected the Saviour’s warning, “no one comes to the Father except through me.” Doing good works, or attending church regularly will not get that heavenly passport, because God has told us that it’s “not by works of righteousness that we have done, but according to God’s mercy He saves us.” Please do not put off acquiring your heavenly passport.
