My church gave its members a deadline in which to choose their cemetery plot in the lot by the church.

My mother made the phone call for me and my sister. We chose what could be prime locations–our own little place in this world.

When I called my sister afterward she said, “So, I hear we’re good to go.”

Yes, we’re good to go. Not because we have a place to deposit our remains, but because we have a relationship with a man called Jesus.

John 3:18 (New International Version)

18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
