You’re on BASE! Take some time to catch your breath … you are safe.

A man dies and goes to heaven.  St. Peter meets him at the Pearly Gates and 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 a certain number of points for each item, depending on how good it
was.  When you reach 100 points, you get in.’
 
‘Okay,’ the man says, ‘I was married to the same woman for 50 years and never cheated on her, even in my heart.’
 
‘That’s wonderful,’ says St. Peter, ‘that’s worth two points!’
 
‘Two points?!’ he says.  ‘Well, I attended church all my life and supported its ministry with my tithe and service.’
 
‘Terrific!’ says St. Peter..  ‘That’s certainly worth a point.’
 
‘One point!?!!’ ‘I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for homeless veterans.’
 
‘Fantastic, that’s good for two more points,’ he says.
 
‘ Two points!?!! ‘Exasperated, the man cries.  ‘At this rate the only way I’ll get into
heaven is by the grace of God.’
 
Bingo !   100 points !    Come on in!’

  1. I was starting to get worried for myself in that scenario!!

    Good point though. I can’t do enough good to get into Heaven…in a multitude of lifetimes I wouldn’t be able to earn enough “points”. So I’ll have to rely on His grace and mercy and pity for such a soul as I am.

    I’M SO GLAD OUR SALVATION IS NOT SOMETHING WE MUST EARN.

  2. That was really profound.

    IT MAKES GRACE PRETTY CLEAR DOESN’T IT?!

  3. If anyone from the bible was gonna say “Bingo” I would have guessed Peter! He is just so easy to relate to!

    GOOD POINT … I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IF HE SAID BINGO A LOT. HE HAD TO HAVE HAD LOTS OF LIGHT BULB MOMENTS WHEN HE FINALLY GOT HIS FOOT OUT OF HIS MOUTH.
