When we enter a foreign country
There is a necessity;
It is mandatory and it’s a requirement
It’s our passport that sets us free.
It’s an admission to a particular place
And it’s an official document;
It certifies our identity
And our citizenship cements.
How do we expect heaven to enter
Without the legal requirement,
The official stamp upon our heart
And the seal that’s heaven sent?
God does not accept visas
As they’re a temporary admission;
They smell like a passport but ain’t indeed
As they have a different mission.
Jesus made enormous claims
Of being the only way;
The truth, the life and access to the Father
With a heavy price He paid.
Is Jesus our passport or just a visa?
We need to challenge ourselves,
As the road is long and narrow indeed
Where very few saints do dwell.
Our true passport to success
Is only found through Christ,
And when our soul departs from our flesh
His covering will suffice.
So before we take our final trip
To our eternal destination…
Let’s ensure our passport is valid and stamped
To be sure without hesitation.
