But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33 NIV84)
How does one enter heaven?
This question is easily answered in John:
I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. (John 5:24 NIV84)
Now, I’m going to add a little more Bible onto that one:
I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. (Mark 10:15 NIV84)
Jesus said that to enter heaven, you have to have a childlike faith. Let’s take a look at that.
The fact is that God, and only God, can fathom His mind and mercy—what He does for us and why. Realizing that, we become humble in faith. Humility is one of the greatest virtues one can have in my opinion. To welcome humility in your life is to welcome God.
Jesus was a great example of humility when He died on the cross. Though He was the greatest, He made Himself the least, encouraging those around Him the entire way.
And through faith and trust, you can do the same.
