I have to say, I had the most weird dream I think I have ever had in my life. My sisters, Mama and I were on a long road in our car, driving. It was the Road of Life. We were almost to the end, about to go to either Heaven or Hell, and I was thinking "Did I live my life to the fullest? Am I really a Christian that lived my life for Jesus? One that's really worthy enough to go into Heaven?". Then, right as we are almost to the end, I wake up. (:
As I was thinking about this today, I was wondering if Jesus was telling me something. Maybe I'm not living my life fully. But the last question really stumped me. Am I worthy enough, with all of the wrong that I have done in my life? This whole idea has been bothering me all day long, until I remembered this from a song.
"When I think of Heaven, and all the sights I'll see,
The walls of jasper, gates of pearl, the clear and golden street,
Why should I be present? Why should I enter in?
After all the sinful living; and the wicked one I've been.
In the presence of Jehovah, as I stand before the throne,
The accuser of the brethren starts to read the things I've done.
As I hear the awful charges, the question fills my mind:
Why should I not be put in Hell to suffer for all time?
It's through the blood, that's all I have to plea;
It's through the blood, that Jesus shed for me.
Not by works of my own righteousness.
For filthy rags are they
But because of that old rugged tree
Hanging on dark Calvary;
That is my only plea;
It's through the blood!"
My Lord Jesus knows exactly when I need Him!
