All Access Pass

“God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to His eyes.”(Psalm 18:24 The Message)

Have you ever been to a concert and seen people with an All Access Backstage Pass?  When I was a teenager, I always wanted to get my hands on one of those passes and be included backstage where I perceived all the action and important people were. 

God has given you an All Access Pass to eternal life through His son Jesus Christ.  

John 3:16 (NIV) states, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” 

What does this mean?  God loves YOU!  In fact, He loves you so much that he wants to be with you forever. But what does, “He gave His one and only son” mean?  God allowed His son Jesus to die on the cross.  But why did Jesus have to die?  Jesus conquered death when He rose back to life from the grave three days after his death on the cross. 

Whereas you and I are sinners, Jesus was sinless.  If you have ever told a lie, stolen anything, or even talked back to your parents, then you have sinned.

  Romans 3:23 (NIV) states, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”   

Heaven is a fabulous place that has been prepared for you where no one will hunger or thirst again (Revelation 7:17).  God created Heaven and Earth with laws.  The laws of Earth include the law of gravity and the tides of the oceans.  The law of Heaven states that sin is not allowed into Heaven (Revelation 21:27).  Since God could not allow sin into heaven, Jesus’ sinless sacrifice covers our sin so that we can enter into heaven. 

This All Access Pass gives you more than eternal life.  It gives you freedom from the chains that bind you in this life once you open your heart to your Savior.  You, see, II Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) says that you are a New Creation, the old has gone and the new has come.  Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. 

Have you given your heart and life to Christ?  God has promised you that He can rewrite your life if you open the book of your heart to His eyes.  I challenge you today to take full advantage of your All Access Pass so that you can overcome having freedom to fulfill your God given destiny.
