Luke 13

Today in the last part of Luke 13 Jesus teaches about salvation.  This is a lesson we all need to pay very close attention to.  He is asked if there would be “few or many” that are saved.  His answer – quit worrying about that and focus on getting yourself right with God.  Check out what Jesus says: “The way to life–to God-is vigorous and requires your total attention. A lot of you are going to assume that you’ll sit down to God’s salvation banquet just because you’ve been hanging around the neighborhood all your lives. Well, one day you’re going to be banging on the door, wanting to get in, but you’ll find the door locked and the Master saying, Sorry, you’re not on my guest list.”  How sad that day will be for so many who thought they would be allowed to enter into eternity with God just because they were “hanging around” the church and acting religious.  That won’t cut it guys.  The ONLY way we will enter eternity with the Father is through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Hanging around the church, doing good things, talking religious stuff – it doesn’t cut it.  Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life” and no man comes to the Father but through Him.  We have been given the secret to salvation – now we need to apply it in our own lives and make sure we are in right relationship with Jesus, but we also need to share it with others so they don’t get surprised either.  Are you on the guest list?  Have you made that commitment?  Have you told others how to be an invitation to the best thing they can ever know?  It is up to us to share the truth.  Let’s get after it!
