Heaven's Passport

Heaven's Passport
My father grew up a Catholic. As happens with many people, unless it was a wedding, funeral or holiday, he stopped attending church services regularly. After their divorce, I can remember my Dad regularly attending the local Christian Missionary Alliance Church for a while. Once he stopped going there, he never again stepped foot inside a church for a religious service. Though none of us were Catholic and for lack of knowing who else to call, when he died, I called the priest to officiate a grave side service.

Weighing deeply on my mind, I painfully wondered if I would see him in Heaven. Was my Dad saved? In angst, I turned to the priest and asked. He assured me that, while he didn’t attend the mortar and brick building for services, my Dad was a praying man and a very spiritual man. I was comforted by the fact that Father Peterson was able to tell me that my Dad possessed a spirituality and belief that was as pure, beautiful and unwavering as a child’s. I was lucky. I had reassurance.

It was due to a similar situation that Deidra Lewis Dennis penned Passport To Heaven: It’s Irrevocable! Before his death, unsure of his salvation because of a comment he had made, Dennis came up with the idea of putting the salvation plan into a concise and fun passport format. Containing 14 key information pages, 2 pages of scriptural references, and Dennis’ own story, the passport opens with a place for the bearer to add his or her own photo and signature.

I was struck by the abundance of scriptural references and guidance that were presented in such a short and compact booklet. While being marketed as something to give to your loved ones and friends to make sure they know the message of salvation, my thoughts immediately went to what a marvelous tool Heaven’s Passport would be for a church’s new believer class. Per my request, several people read the booklet. Most agreed with my suggestion to use it as curriculum. Whatever your intention, at the low cost and abundance of material contained within, Heaven’s Passport would be ideal to carry in your purse for moments when you encounter a stranger and are led to share God’s word. You can plant the seed and the passport can be given to help it grow.
