Have You a Reservation?

How good it is when the weary traveler can walk up to the hotel desk and find a room ready and waiting, while others may ask in vain and all because his name is on the book; he made a reservation.
We cannot walk up to the gate of heaven after death and obtain a dwelling-place merely by asking for it. Our abiding place up there is secured in advance while we are down here. Our Saviour has gone to prepare a place, but there are places only for those who make reservations.
Is your name in the book?
Many will come in that day and make various claims, but he will say, “Depart, I never knew you.” The dying thief made a reservation: “Remember me.” Reservations are made, not on the basis of our merit, but on His merit and our simple faith in Him.
[Vance Havner]
John 14:2-3 ... In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
1 Peter 1:4-5 ... To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,  Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Revelation 19:9 ... And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

John 6:47 ... Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.❤
