I Have Permission Sunday, June 7, 2015
I now have permission to put a hook in the water. Really. I can legally get a hook wet. And if I'm fortunate, I'll catch a fish while I'm at it.
The other day I renewed my fishing license. Now, my name is written down in some computer in Nashville and I have permission to go fishing.
I also have permission, and even an invitation to enter Heaven some day. I trusted Jesus and my name is written down in the Book of Life in Heaven. I've made my reservation and I'm on my way.
Can you go fishing legally? Can't if you don't qualify. Are you on your way to Heaven? Can't if your name's not written down.
Jesus paid for your sin. All you have to do is ask for forgiveness. And unlike my license, it's all free!
