Easter posted by John Sorensen on Mar 25, 2016
As Christians around the world prepare to celebrate Easter, may I ask you a question? Have you come to the place in your spiritual life where you know for certain that you’ll be with God in Heaven someday?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. I hope your answer to that question is, “Yes.” But whether it’s, ”Yes, I hope so,” or “No, I don’t know that,” I’d like to ask you another question. If you were to stand before God and He were to say, why should I let you into My Heaven, what would you say? Do you have your answer? Is it, “I hope my good outweighs my bad, I’m a good person,” or is it, “Because Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose again to pay the penalty for my sins and purchased a place for me in Heaven which He offers as a free gift and I have received this gift by faith.” This Easter, I’ve just asked two of the most important questions you could ever answer.
