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!”

I will close with this;
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).
