I like to read Joseph Prince because he reminds me that I can't earn God's approval. I can't work my way into Heaven. There's nothing I can do on my own to get there. It doesn't matter how good I try to be, or what great deeds I do for others. Nothing will get me to Heaven but recognizing and believing that Jesus has already "bought my ticket" through His death on the cross. By becoming a sacrifice for my sins He became my Savior. Believing and accepting this is the only way I will get into Heaven. Since I have given my life to Him, the Father sees only Jesus when He looks at me. My part in all this is to rest in that fact and trust that He is, and always will be, my advocate before the Father.
