Do you know what’s going to get in between you and Heaven more than anything else?
Your spouse? Your parents? Your job? Your children? Your hobbies? Your addiction? Your anger? Your apathy? Your ignorance? Your culture? Maybe the Devil? What’s the answer?
Take a look in the mirror for the real answer!
We may not like what we see, but the mirror doesn’t lie.
“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.” (Luke 14:26-27 - NKJV)
”If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:1-3 - NKJV)
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:22-25 - NKJV)
