Ticket to Heaven

I saw this Ticket to Heaven card used by Robert Schuller (the younger) on the weekly broadcast from the Crystal Cathedral and thought that I would briefly post about it. The scripture on the ticket comes from John 6:37 and reads this way in the New Century Version:
The Father gives me the people who are mine. Every one of them will come to me, and I will always accept them.
This is a straighforward verse.. I love the simplicty of it. I have had many conversations with folks who don't believe that it is even necessary to pray or come to Jesus in any way.. at least in this side of the grave. I have also been exposed to a lot of rules about what coming to Jesus looks like.. everything from baptism to church attendance. So, for me anyway, I will go with simplicity and say that all one needs to do is to simply come to Jesus.. and He will do the rest.


  1. I love KJV too, "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me Iwill in no wise cast out." I'm so glad I came and I'm so glad He holds me in the palm of His hand and under His wing.

    Glad you think us Okies rock!!! One thing for sure, we will not grow old sitting in the rocking chair talking about "the good ole days"! Too much fun and interesting stuff going on today.

  2. Bob,
    I am on the side of just coming, opening up your heart and your mind to let Him make Himself known to you.
    I think it's really simple too,we always want some outward sign of what God is doing, but if we don't see it that doesn't mean that God isn't at work. I think the altar call & say a prayer method of salvation gives many a false sense of security and those things have little or nothing to do with belonging to Jesus.
    Jesus had a pretty simple and straight forward message. We always want to have people (and ourselves) qualify for something they/we can never earn.

  3. "in the palm of His hand".. great imagery to start my morning Susan!

    "belonging to Jesus".. that says it well Shaun.

    Thanks for your comments dear friends.. warmed my heart this morning.
