You’ve cheered for your favorite football team through the good times and the bad. You’ve faithfully supported them with t-shirts, bumper stickers, and a flag. The year finally comes when they make it to the Super Bowl! With your face painted and team colors on, you drive the distance to the game.

Overwhelmed with emotions, you arrive at the stadium anticipating the ultimate experience. But, when you get to the gate, the attendant asks for your ticket.

Ticket? Isn’t my support good enough? Won’t my cheering get me in? I know the players and coach by name! Why do I still need a ticket?”

Out of the crowd, a stranger approaches and hands you his ticket. He paid the ticket price so that you could enter. You gratefully accept it and go in.

This is Our Guaranteed Access to Heaven.

I don’t stand a chance of getting into Heaven on my own efforts, and neither do you. We can know every major player on Team Jesus, connect ourselves with prominent Christian faith leaders, but it still won’t be enough to put us in right standing in the eyes of God.

That’s why God sent a Savior to pay our price so that we could enter His gates. That’s good news!

Acts 10:43 says that all who believe in Jesus will be forgiven of their sins through Jesus’ name. The price has been paid for you; all you need to do is believe in Jesus and let Him be your Savior. Then, follow Him as your Lord until you meet in eternity.

So, What’s The Play Call?

Think about it:

  1. What’s the nicest gift someone ever bought for you?
  2. Do you believe that Jesus paid the price for your sins so you could be with Him forever?
  3. Have you told others about this gift?


Father, thank You for sending Jesus to pay the price for me. I don’t deserve to be with You in Heaven, but I accept the entrance gratefully. Help live a life worthy of You and to share Your good news with others. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.”
