When we ponder all of the things that can help us get to heaven, there is one thing that rises above all the rest: doing the will of God. For proof of this we need only look to Matthew 7:21, where Jesus says:
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father, who is in heaven.”
Doing the will of God in our daily lives unleashes torrents of grace for ourselves and for others. But we’re wounded people, burdened with the weight of original sin. However, that can be overcome through prayer and self-discipline.
On Friday, call and share how you strive to do the will of God in everything you do. We may fall short on many occasions. But it’s getting up and trying again that counts!
