Do you know what diplomatic immunity is?
“The reason why diplomats never get sick?”
Come on . . .
“OK. It means that they get into and out of countries without anyone rifling through their bags.”
Yeah. That’s a part of it. Would be nice, wouldn’t it?
“Great, if you travel overseas a lot.”
I used to do a good bit of it, and could have used it then instead of waiting in line for someone to mess up my neatly packed clothes!
But It’s also true of every true believer when he goes to heaven. He has full immunity from search or seizure. The Lord has seen to that. He goes sailing right through the gates, with no waiting in line. Great, isn’t it?
“Yes, and we’ll not be carrying any baggage with us either. Can’t take it with you.”
Won’t want to. Everything’s so much better where we’re going that we certainly won’t want any of the stuff we now prize so dearly.
