No Capacity Limit

 Devotion for the Week...

When I was in high school Bon Jovi came to Halifax for a concert. The day the tickets went on sale, I spent a long time with the phone to my ear - calling the number to buy tickets, hearing a busy signal, hanging up and then pressing redial again. I want to say it was hours, though I can’t remember for sure how long it actually was. I did eventually get through to buy tickets for myself and my friends, but it was definitely stressful hearing that busy signal so many times. I thought for sure the show would sell out and there wouldn’t be room left for us!

Fortunately, salvation isn’t an offer that can sell out. The ‘seats’ in heaven aren’t limited like ticket sales. John wrote, “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God” (John 1:12-13). And Jesus Himself said, "Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am" (John 14:1-3).

Heaven has no capacity limit |

This offer is available to all who believe. Anyone and everyone, so long as they believe in Jesus, becomes a child of God. I love that heaven has no capacity limit!

With His death on the cross, Jesus paid the ticket price for the entire world and there’s no risk there won’t be room left for us.
