Where does your hope for heaven lie?
"Hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."
Jack Welch, the former CEO of GE, was interviewed on 60 Minutes, and the interviewer asked him if he could remember the toughest question he had ever been asked. Welch replied, “Someone asked me if I think I’ll go to heaven.”
Then he said, “I’ll go to heaven if caring about people, if giving it your all, if being a great friend counts… despite the fact that I’ve been divorced a couple of times. I haven’t done everything right all the time. I think I got a shot. I’m in no hurry to get there and [to] find out any time soon.”
Well, I want you to know that you need more than a shot! Don’t put your trust in yourself, the number of friends you have, the number of good deeds that you’ve done, how much money you’ve made, or in anything short of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Set your hope fully on the grace given to you in Christ and you will have more than a shot, you will have a hope that will not put you to shame!
DON’T PUT YOUR HOPE FOR HEAVEN ON ANYTHING SHORT OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
