I recently had a stressed out morning. Upon awakening I turned on my computer, to my dismay it wanted me to enter a password before gaining access. Recent downloads to my computer were blocking my entrance.
As sentry it silently probed, “Who goes there?”
“But, computer…you know me. We have been inseparable for the last three years. I haven’t needed my password since the first few days of our relationship. Why do you ask me to use it now? I’m clueless to what password I fed you!”
Too many in our midst are clueless to God’s only acceptable password into his kingdom.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will get into the kingdom of heaven, but only those who practice doing the will of my Father in heaven (Matthew 8:21 Williams New Testament).” Without faith as their password, he will bar them from his kingdom.
