This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #317, titled, “Something Sweeter Than Honey…” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
What is sweeter than honey, more beautiful than a butterfly, and full of more love than you have ever known? No, I’m not talking about fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, I’m talking about Heaven! Heaven is much better than anything we have ever seen or known.
WHAT IS HEAVEN?
Heaven is a wonderful place that God has made for people who love Him. The Bible describes it as a place where everyone is always happy, a place with no tears or crying or pain. It is a very beautiful place, and those who have seen it use words like “glory” and “pure” and “gold” to describe it. It is a place where nobody will ever need to be hungry, or tired, or poor.
THAT’S GREAT! HOW DO I GET THERE?
You can’t get to Heaven in a car or bus, or even an airplane or spaceship. You can’t buy a ticket to Heaven, and you can’t sneak in when nobody is looking. There is only one way to get to Heaven, and Jesus is that Way. Without Jesus, nobody can go to Heaven.
Heaven is one of the two places you go after you die. The other place is called Hell, and is the worst place you could ever think of. How does God decide who goes to Heaven and who goes to Hell? The Bible says that God has books where He keeps track of the things people do. Have you ever told a lie, even a tiny one? We all do bad things like lying or even worse. God calls these bad things “sin” and writes them down in His books.
The problem is, sin cannot be in Heaven where God is. Because we have all sinned, we are all on the road to Hell. But God loves us so much, and doesn’t want anybody to go to Hell. That is why He sent His Son Jesus to take our place and die for our sins. Because of what Jesus did when He died on the cross and rose again, God will forgive the sins of people who turn to Jesus for help.
WILL I BE THERE?
Heaven is a great place, but do you know for sure that you will be there? The Bible makes it very clear that if we realize that we are sinners, turn to Jesus for help, and trust Him completely, we will be saved from our sins. At the moment you ask Jesus to save you, God will wash away your sins and write your name in His “Book of life.” You will be on your way to Heaven!
Some people won’t make it to Heaven because they don’t believe what God has said in the Bible. Others will miss Heaven because they think they can do enough good things to get there. Others will have to suffer an eternity in Hell because they won’t turn to Jesus for help. Don’t be like them! Believe God’s Word. Admit to God that you are a sinner, and thank Him for sending Jesus to take away your sins by dying on the cross.
Trust Jesus as your Savior today, and you will have something much better than candy. Your sins will all be forgiven, your name will be written in the Book of Life, and you will be on your way to Heaven!
