It is only the gospel of Jesus that puts an end to beggarly pitiful ladders that aspire to reach eternity. We have no such ladder-climbing ability whatsoever. The gospel knows of no climbing skills required by you and me. It only knows of the ladder whereby Jesus Christ came down to earth to do it ALL for you and me. Jesus has nailed to the cross every human ladder that there ever was or will be. He alone stands on offer – it’s a very intimate and personal relationship or nothing. God has forgiven all of your sins, past, present and future. No payment ever required says your God.
He did that so that you wouldn’t relate to him out of guilt, or shame, or out of burdensome duty, but out of love. God knows how awesome He is and He wants you to know that about Him. Until you have felt that tug of love on your heart, you haven’t begun to know the joy of the gospel.
