This site usually focused on worship guitar tips but I just received this Christian joke and thought it might bring a smile to you, too. A merry heart is good medicine.
HEAVEN’S ENTRANCE EXAM
A man dies and goes to Heaven. Saint Peter
meets him at the Pearly Gates and says, “Ok,
here’s how it works. You need 100 points to
make it into Heaven. You tell me all the good
things you’ve done, and I’ll award you a certain
number of points for each item, depending on
how good it was. When you reach 100 points,
you get in.”
“Okay,” the man says….”I was married to the
same woman for 50 years and never once
cheated on her, even in my heart.”
“That’s wonderful,” says Saint Peter, “That’s
worth three points!” “Three points?” he asks.
“Well, I attended church all my life and
supported its ministry with my tithes and
“Terrific!” says Saint Peter, “That’s certainly
worth a point.” “One point?!!
Hey, I started a soup kitchen in my city and
worked in a shelter for homeless veterans!”
“Fantastic, that’s good for two more points, ”
Saint Peter says. “Two points?!!” the man
“At this rate, the only way I’m going to get
into Heaven is by the Grace of God!”
“Bingo, 100 points! Come on in!”
It’s a silly little joke, but the point is well taken. We come into a relationship with God because of His grace. We can never be ‘perfect’ enough to enter into His presence. Jesus died on the cross to pay our penalty and open the door for a real relationship with God. He loved us when we didn’t even acknowledge His existence!
