The Password

40,000 died because they hadn't the password needed to cross the Jordan, Judges 12:5-6.

One day we too must "cross Jordan," - go from time into eternity, but without the password that crossing will be to hell, not heaven.  The password is to be able to say Yes to the question, Have you been born again? for Christ warns, "Ye must be born again," for "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God," John 3:7,3.

To be born again admit that you're a sinner without any righteousness, believe that Christ died in your place for your sins, and that in response to that faith God will pardon you, and receive you into heaven, John 3:16.

"Have you been born again?" is a question that evokes the laughter of many today.  There will be no laughter at that instant when it is discovered that the eternal fate of the soul depends on being able to answer YES.
