The Password to Heaven
We all use them, whether it be for work, school or our personal email. The requirements for them continue to go up and up by requiring an uppercase and lowercase letter, number, symbol, etc.
The definition of password is:
"a word or string of characters used for user authentication to prove identity or access approval to gain access to a resource, which is to be kept secret from those not allowed access." (Wikipedia)
Heaven is password-protected; you need a key to get it. We are told multiple times in the Bible what this password is. This password is how we will be saved: Jesus our savior.
Acts 4:12 (NIV)
This is Peter talking right after he was arrested with John:
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
In Acts 4 Peter says no other name under heaven can save us. In today’s day and age, the password “Jesus” takes about 2 seconds to crack on a normal computer. It’s almost as if God wants us to break the code and spend eternity with Him in heaven.
John 14:6 continues to reinforce this idea of Jesus giving us access to heaven:
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
No one comes to the Father except through me. It is not a hard password, it's not complex and it's definitely not being kept from us. God wants to give us access to heaven and it's our responsibility to take advantage of the offer.
Mark 10:45 reads, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Jesus has PAID the ransom and we can only get to heaven through him. It is so obvious and that was God’s plan the whole time. The message was meant for all and it’s our responsibility to receive it.
I’ve told you the password to heaven, so now it’s your responsibility to use it and share it. What are you going to do with it?
