Human Goodness Is Not The Door To Heaven
As a PTL Power Sharer, Todd gives out hundreds of Pocket Testaments.
He is always prepared with several Gospels and various covers—
ready to share as God provides Divine appointments.
Yesterday he was having lunch in a fast-food restaurant and God opened the opportunity for Todd to have a conversation with a young woman who was open to hearing about Jesus, receive a Gospel of John and pray for Christ to become her Savior and Lord.
As Todd got up from the table after his conversation with the young woman,
he eyed a man who was wearing a World War II Navy veteran cap entering the eatery.
Todd thanked him for his service to our country.
The two men began to converse, and Todd told him that he had spent some time in the army.
Todd smiled his big ear to ear grin and said, “Now I’m in the Army of the Lord”. The man introduced himself as Richard and let Todd know he is 95 years of age. Todd recounted,
Richard revealed that even at 95 years of age,
he was still under the illusion that he would go to heaven
for being a good person.
Todd confirmed to Richard that he probably is a good person, but human goodness does not take a person to heaven and eternal life with God. Only accepting the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross can lead him to heaven. Todd shared the Gospel with Richard and then led him in a prayer to have Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
Richard didn’t have a Bible
and since his poor vision would make reading small fonts difficult,
so Todd offered him a Gospel of John in Large Print.
