People often didn’t realize the degree of skill and athleticism necessary to play in a competitive sport league. Let’s be honest, if a player doesn’t have at least above average proficiency then they may not be ready to play at the top level. Did you know that there are eligibility requirements to be on God’s team? Oh yes that’s right. Not heritage, resources, appearance or performance. Making the squad requires comprehensive repentance. No qualification, just a proper response to His majesty. Only one thing determines who makes the heavenly roster – a sorrowful turn of the heart towards Christ’s gift of eternal life.
“For Godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief pro- duces death” (2 Cor 7:10).
Have you repented to the King of Kings?
