Thieves in Marlborough New Zealand broke into a car, parked outside a local repair shop. They crossed the ignition wires attempting to steal the vehicle. But it would not go. Unknown to them the engine had been removed for repairs. This is a reminder for us all. Be sure there’s an engine aboard if you hope to get anywhere. Make sure the locomotive is hooked to the train. And more importantly we need to make sure we have the proper connection to Jesus, if we hope to make it to heaven. Our Saviour explained, “I am the way, that truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Or to put it another way, if our lives are merely connected to religion, church, baptism or good works, we’ll not ever see heaven. That’s because God’s Word tells us, “It is not by works of righteousness that we have one, but according to His mercy He saves us.” Are you connected to Jesus?
