How to Get to Heaven From Pittsburgh Part 2

First comes the bad news. No matter how hard you try on your own you'll never find peace and joy. The things that the world has to offer for peace are only mirages in the desert. Like cotton candy, they taste sweet for a moment but then disappear, having no real substance to them. Whether you tried a pursuit of pleasure, power, or wealth what you've found is temporary peace and permanent emptiness. Give up! You can never find happiness in the places you're looking. The Bible calls these things sin and informs us that sin will bring nothing but death to our souls. And even if you're trying real hard to do what's right, you can never achieve the perfection that a holy God requires.

For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, (Romans 3:22b-23)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23a)

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. (Gal 6:7-8)

Happiness isn't found in a thing or a place. It's found in a person: Jesus Christ!
