Today's Photograph . . . . People Who Depend On Their Work or Personal Qualifications Will Be Told What This Sign Says  (Jack M) 
Bible Study Verse
Galatians 2:16 
Know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified. (NIV)
"I should be awarded this recognition because I have fulfilled all the requirements."  A young person was coached to say this.   They were about to be interviewed prior to being recognized for the ultimate award in a particular organization.  He believed he had earned the award. 
(Jack M)
Action Point
There are a lot of people who feel that way about going to Heaven. They believe they have fulfilled all the requirements. They think that their good works, their charitable giving, their attendance at church, their record of public service, their membership in a club, their family history, or any number of other things will get them to Heaven.
People who depend on their work or personal qualifications will be told "Do Not Enter" like the sign in today's picture.

The truth is that there is only one way to go to Heaven. That Way has a name. His name is Jesus Christ. He died, was buried, and rose again in order to fulfill all the requirements for humans to go to Heaven. Put your faith in Him alone for Heaven.
What are you counting on to get there? In Christ alone is the answer.
Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Make sure that you sign or endorse all of your permits and licenses when you receive them and before you hunt with them. In most places it is not legal to hunt unless you sign your name or endorse the license, the tags or stamps. Even the federal waterfowl stamps must be signed by the owner to be valid. With many items being printed or delivered electronically from one's own computer, this is especially easy to forget.
