Do you think you Deserve Heaven

The essential point is, that the way to know yourself a sinner is not to compare yourself with other people; it is to come face to face with the Law of God. Well, what is God’s Law ? Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal? ‘I have never done that,
therefore I am not a sinner.’ But, my friend, that is not the Law of God in its entirety. Would you like to know what the Law
of God is ? Here it is—’Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself’ (Mark 12. 30, 31). Forget all about drunkards and their like, forget all the people you read about in the press at the present time. Here is the test for you and me: Are you loving God with all your being ? If you are not, you are a sinner. That is the test. ‘All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.’
