Well known author Max Lucado went to an airport to catch a flight. He checked his luggage, got his ticket and went to the gate, past security, took a seat and waited to board the plane. He waited and waited. Finally, an attendant informed him, that he was at the wrong gate. This sounds like many of us, when we think about going to heaven. We check in at the gate of good works, church attendance and so on, but no call for our destination comes. We are at the wrong gate. Nobody is ever good enough to earn his or her way to heaven. Jesus reminds us, “Enter in by the narrow gate, for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” Jesus is the only gate. He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Please think about that.
