Tears In Good Faith

She sat looking at the words. All her life, she had been told that God loves everyone and that everyone will end up in heaven because of His great love. So, she never pushed her husband or children to go to church with her. What difference would it make if everyone ends up in heaven anyways? But the stranger had told her to look in the Psalms. Now she was scared as she read the words in chapter 5 and verse 5 – “The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all who do iniquity.”

She began to cry. Her pain was intense. Finally, she looked up and prayed.

“Father, I was wrong. Help me to minister to my family that they may come to know You.”

  1. Oh Len, so good to hear words of faith. Scripture (for those who believe) is clear that one does not get to Heaven simply by good works, and we must pray for those who do not believe or who are just living the good life. A good reference would be for all to read is Luke 16:23 Amen

    • Thanks, Lynn. The story of the rich man and Lazarus – on of my favorites to share – not to scare or condemn – but to ask that question, “Are you sure?” I always point out that in 1st century Jewish thinking, rich people were considered blessed by God do they surely go to heaven – this is not a parable – the rich man doesn’t complain that his treatment is unfair so he knows he earned it – despite not helping Lazarus, he wants Lazarus to comfort him – and finally, he realizes his brothers will face the same fate because he was a bad example and he can’t do anything to warn them. One of the most important lessons taught by Jesus.
