Jesus’ plan for getting to heaven is tough. Do we have to do it perfectly? No! We’re human. We cannot live perfectly Jesus’ plan to get to heaven. But, that’s okay. What we have to do to get to heaven is to get at least a passing grade on the Divine Test of Life. And, although even getting a passing grade is difficult, it is well within our ability.
Why do people do Christ-like things? Because it makes them feel good? Hardly. Often, they are worn out. Their feelings are, at best, dormant. They do what they do because their faith correctly tells them it is the loving thing to do.
