Imagine you are given an opportunity to take a free ride on an international cruise ship. As you are embarking the port authority explains, the free ticket guarantees your arrival to the destination, but the quality of the journey depends on your choices. 


Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

Salvation is the ticket to this voyage. Purchased by Jesus Christ, it ensures our journey from the earthly shore to the heavenly one. This divine ticket, accepted through faith, launches our journey, marking our eternal destination. Your ship will undoubtedly reach the shore; the ticket guarantees it.


And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. (Luke 14:27)

Once aboard, the quality of the journey - discipleship - relies on your choices. It's the exercise you do, the food you eat, the relationships you build. Some choose the rigorous routine of exercise, healthy food, and enriching fellowship. These passengers arrive in good health, ready to enjoy the heavenly shore. Others opt for an easier path, preferring the buffet of excess, neglecting exercise, isolating themselves. They too will arrive, but in poor shape, not fit to enjoy the destination fully.


Let the security of your salvation ticket encourage you. But also remember, your choices in discipleship determine your spiritual health. Strive for growth, godly relationships, and righteous living on this voyage, so you arrive ready to fully enjoy your eternal destination.
