HEAVENLY RATES

A MAN DIES AND GOES TO HEAVEN. OF COURSE, ST. PETER MEETS HIM AT THE PEARLY GATES.

ST. PETER SAYS, “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 GIVE YOU CERTAIN NUMBER OF POINTS FOR EACH ITEM, DEPENDING ON HOW GOOD IT WAS. WHEN YOU GET 100 POINTS, YOU GET IN.”

“OKAY” THE MAN SAYS, “I WAS MARRIED TO THE SAME WOMAN FOR 50 YEARS AND NEVER CHEATED ON HER.

“THAT’S WONDERFUL,” SAYS PETER, “THAT’S WORTH 3 POINTS!”

“3 POINTS?” HE SAYS. “WELL, I ATTENDED CHURCH ALL MY LIFE AND SUPPORTED ITS MINISTRY WITH MY TITHE AND SERVICE.” “TERRIFIC!” SAYS PETER, “THAT’S CERTAINLY WORTH 2 POINTS.”

“2 POINTS? JOLLY. “I FED THE POOR ALWAYS” CONTINUE THE MAN.

“THAT WAS GOOD” RETORTED PETER, “3 POINTS.”

OK, HOW ABOUT THIS: “I WON COUNTLESS OF SOULS FOR CHRIST AND HELPED ESTABLISHED THEM IN THE CHURCH”

“FANTASTIC, YOU SHOULD HAVE STARTED WITH THAT, 95 POINTS”

COME ON IN, YOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT!”

He that winneth souls is WISE. Proverbs 11:30.

I will close with this;

Matthew 28:18-20 Amplified Bible (AMP)

18Jesus approached and, [a]breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.

19Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them [b]into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you [c]all the days ([d]perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. [e]Amen (so let it be).
