Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 April 7

Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you. (Deuteronomy 4:1)

Today’s Morsel: What would you say are the requirements to enter heaven?  So many struggle in their walk with God because they will not follow His word.  I’m amazed at the number of people who will obey the rules and instructions for their secular job, which has no eternal value, but yet they reject the word of God which can give them life and lead to eternity.  The Ten commandments are probably the easiest thing in the word of God to do. Actually, Jesus said that the whole law is fulfilled in these 10 scriptures.  Love God and love you neighbor as yourself. What Jesus was really saying is that if you don’t love Him, you aren’t going to love your neighbor.  But if you love Him, then you shouldn’t have a problem with loving your neighbor.  It’s amazing how the “Golden Rule” can change us if we obey it.  Moses told the children of Israel that in order to live and possess the land that God had promised them that needed to obey God’s statutes and judgments which He had taught them.  In other words, don’t expect to enter the promise without obedience.  The Bible is the road map to heaven, but we have to obey it.

Sing:  Oh there's a highway to heaven, none can walk up there, but the pure and heart. Oh there’s a highway to heaven, walking up the King's highway.

Thought For Today: The Bible holds the key to your entrance to heaven.
