You’ve got the ticket!

Romans 5:1+2

“1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.”

Have you ever been so excited to attend an event that you were counting down the days to the moment of showtime? Maybe you had Packer tickets or tickets for Hamilton on Broadway? The ticket that you spent your hard-earned money to buy would get you into this coveted event. The day finally comes, you go, and it’s fantastic; everything you hoped it would be. Maybe, you even boast about it to your co-workers upon your return, “It was great! If only you could’ve been there!”

My friends, we have an even greater thing to boast about than a game or a show. We can boast about how our sins have been forgiven; about how heaven is our home! And the best part is, we didn’t have to shell out a dime for it. Jesus paid for it. His blood is our ticket to God, and it never expires! This coveted ticket is exclusive through faith in Christ. Your name is on this ticket, so go out and boast about it!
