“This way, Ma’am” the airport agent said as she took me by the arm, leading me close to the security counter. “Hold out your hands, palms up.”
I obeyed. And with quick strokes, she swiped both hands with a paper/cloth material. That was their way to detect if I had handled any controlled substance.
A minute later she drew close. “Okay, all clear. You may proceed.”
Wow! That’s what I would like God to say should He swipe not my hands, but my heart. Sadly, He might not see it clean. Instead, He might detect insecurities, restlessness about the future, feelings of inadequacies, confusion and at times, fear.
What about you, will your heart be clean, clear and ready to proceed on?
No need to stress because it’s more crucial to answer God’s question. He will put us through one more test. The one that makes the difference. The one that determines if we will cross the entry to heaven.
And in case you thought that we’ll pass the test by simply saying we know who Jesus is, or if we called out His name, or if we turned to Him in hard times, here’s His answer: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 7:21)
Will you be one of those who pass the test by doing His will?
