How to get a free upgrade for your journey

Text: Ephesians 1:3, 12 - "Blessed be the God and Father of out Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ....That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ"

If you ever travel abroad commercial aircraft you may experience being approached at the airport before departure. It is not uncommon to be approached by BA staff and receive an offer to be upgraded to the next higherst class of accomadation. If you have booked into Tourist class you may be "upgraded" into Business Class or even First Class. This is because the Economy section is full, but there are empty seats in other parts of the aircraft.

My wife and I were waiting Kings Cross station a few years ago after a trip to London when we were approached by someone from the train company offering us more comfort in Business. We accepted the offer. It was a more pleasant experience that we had in Economy on the journey on the way down to London, with more legroom and coffee served free at all times. Sometime later I reflected on the pleasant journey and realised that we actually had no right to be there other than being invited there by a member of the train company.

I also think back to my time when I first trusted in God and believed in the finished works of His Beloved Son Jesus Christ. He had upgraded me by placing me in a higher position spiritually.

Just as our journey on the train my first reaction was that I just don't deserve all this good favour with God. The key to all this is that God receives pleasure when someone trusts and has faith in Him. For everyone who receives Christ Jesus into their lives God chooses also for Himself. He has also chosen us before our adoption into His kingdom. He has accepted us and also redeemed us. He also makes Himself known to us and gives us an inheritance so that we may realise what we do is in His name. We should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ.

The original journey was quite true and my wife and I found ourselves sitting in the First-Class compartment of a train with more than ample legroom and being served with refreshments at all time, but my big journey sometime in the future will be also a First-Class upgrade to be with My Lord in Glory. Just like the original train journey took us by surprise, our end journey will take us to with the Lord in complete happiness.

Please do not miss out on your eternal life by receiving a free Upgrade to your future journey by receiving Christ Jesus into your life NOW!
