Heaven is a gift. It can't be bought. It can't be earned. Eternal salvation is the most amazing gift God has ever given us. All you have to do is accept Him and receive His gift. Many people haven't realized this yet. They don't understand that surrender is actually victory. There are some lyrics by Third Day in their song "Caught up in Yourself" that I feel hit the nail on the head.
So, for today I pray that you and those you can touch will realize the way up and seize it.
