Flying First Class

English Audio Version

Here’s the thing about flying First Class, and it’s less to do with your seat on the airplane than the things that come with it.

See, when you fly in the top tier of accommodations, your world changes, from your arrival at the airport to your luggage check in to how you board the plane.

Even going through security is different for a high-dollar flier. You show up at the airport, and you are waved right through. No lines. No waiting. None of that fussy stuff the rest of the passengers must endure.

Sure, there are preapprovals and preflight procedures to achieve this vaulted level of ease, but here’s the point: Flying First Class is easy. That’s intentional, to draw you in, to take advantage of the perks First Class has to offer.

Just like First Class, salvation is a top-tier experience. Seriously, it really is. No waiting in line, none of the fussy stuff. We kneel before Jesus, and the Lord waves us into his presence.

Easy as that.

Ephesians 2:8 says:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”

We just show up at the airport, and we are ushered directly onto the salvation airplane. How sweet is that?

Here’s the thing: We must show up at the airport. There’s no shuttle to pick us up from the gutter, to draw us away from the party crowd, or to turn off our questionable internet searches.

We bring our faith, and God shows us to our seat on his Salvation Airways jetliner.

Come on. Jump aboard. Your seat on God’s non-stop flight to Heaven is waiting on you.

Christ loves us, but one day, he will rise and destroy those who do not follow after him.
