Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life ad may go through the gates into the city. Revelation 22:14
The right to have life is a common topic among people. At times it is a very hot topic, while at other times it is not such a hot topic, but it is always there in the background.
Arguments arise as to when a baby becomes a human being and has a right to life, or how long does the mother maintain the right to stop the baby from life. Fights are made all the time about human rights in various nations around the world. Questions are constantly raised on the right to corporal punishment of those who do wrong. The right to assist in suicide is constantly questioned.
As a whole most people believe that they have a right to live and no one can take that away. God gives every person a start to the right to live. When a person has been born, they have the right to live for a time. It is later decisions, that determine how long they may live.
God has made it very simple in how to obtain the right to the tree of life, eternal life. One just needs to accept what Jesus as done and follow Him during his time of life upon this earth. He must believe that Jesus paid for the sins and removed the sins. To follow Jesus just means that he will love God and others just as God loves him, and he will obey everything God says to say and do.
When a person dies, they will stand before the judgment seat of God. If the person has been washed clean by the blood of Jesus Christ, having all his sins removed, he will have the right to eternal life. If the person has never turned to Jesus for a cleansing of his sins, he will not have the right to eternal life.
You, along with every other person on this earth, has to make the choice to follow Jesus. No one can make it for you. No one can take your place. You must choose for yourself to have your robes cleansed by Jesus. Only at that time will you have the right to eternal life, regardless of how good or bad of a person you are.
Do you have the right Life?
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will allow Jesus to wash away your sins; that you will take what Jesus is offering you; and you will be blessed by God with the right to the tree of life and eternal life.
