DO I QUALIFY ?

 

Remember the days when time seemed to be racing by? You were in a spot where you needed to find employment to supply the demands of life!

When you applied for a position, you were given a Job Description to see if you would qualify. Would you be able to fulfill the demands? O. K. accepted. Now to work.

First day. You learn to take instructions from your Boss. He/she tells you what is expected. Your Job Description is fully explained to the point that you understand. Then they assume that you follow instructions and perform accordingly. Your Supervisor is helpful and willing to guide you through any difficult areas.

There is another great need in our life. Some folks are aware of it, and some aren’t. What about life after the one we live here on earth is ended? Have we applied for a new home? Where do we plan to go? Most folk want to go to Heaven, and usually expect to go there, but do we qualify? You may say: I keep the commandments, am a thankful and good person in every way I know how. I think I’m good enough to pass the Qualification test.

Will being GOOD qualify us for heaven? If so, how good is good enough? Do we have a job description for the measure of how good we must be? How many good things will compensate for the number of bad things we’ve done?

Since heaven is God’s home, wouldn’t you think He would have something to say about the Qualification test?

Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you.” Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people. God has already made provision for our entrance there, through the death of His Son on Calvary. His Word sets forth the requirements for living here, in preparation for living there. Sounds like an important place to be sure that I qualify, doesn’t it?


To help you qualify and secure the position for your New Life, read the following helps, given by the Supervisor.

Matt.7:13,14 Enter though the narrow gate, for
wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads
to destruction, and many enter through it. But
small is the gate and narrow the road that leads
to life, and only a few find it. (NIV)


John 14:6 Jesus said, I am the way, the truth
and the life, no one comes to the Father except
through me.

John 1:12 To as many as received him, to them
gave he the power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name

Eph.2:8,9. For it is by grace, you have been
saved, through faith – and this not from
yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works,
so that no one can boast. (NIV)

II Timothy 2:15 Study (give diligence) to show
thyself approved unto God, a workman that
needeth not to be ashameed, rightly dividing the
word of truth.

II Timothy 2:15 Study (give diligence) to show
thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth.
