There's A Password To Gain Access To Heaven

As an authorized library substitute, I am frequently called to substitute for any one of approximately one hundred school libraries within our local school district. My duties require me to logon into the librarian's computer in order to gain access to the school library's database.

In order to successfully logon, a predetermined generic password is provided for all library substitutes within the school district. Without the password, a library substitute cannot gain access to the library database. Similarly, did you know that God requires an authorized password in order for us to successfully gain access (or entrance) into heaven?

And what is the authorized password, you ask?

The nine letter password is:

o-b-e-d-i-e-n-c-e (Romans 6:17; cf. Gal. 3:1; Gal. 5:7; Philippians 2:12; 2 Thessalonians 3:14; Hebrews 3:18; Hebrews 5:9; Hebrews 11;8; 1 Peter 1:22).

Without the above password, no one can gain entrance into heaven (Matthew 7:21; 2 Peter 1:1-11).

How do we acquire this password?

1) By diligently studying God's authoritative and inspired Word (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV).
2) Doing what God's word instructs to do regarding our salvation (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16; Acts 17:30; Romans 10:8-10; Romans 10:17; cf. Hebrews 11:6; James 2:14-26).

Dear reader, if you don't already have the above password, please diligently search the above Scriptures as the noble Bereans willingly did (Acts 17:10-11) and then take immediate action to acquire the password that will allow us to gain access [entrance] to heaven (2 Peter 1:2-11).
