Many people today have false hope that they can earn a place in heaven by working at being good or by doing good things. God’s standard of perfection, however, requires totally sinless. There’s no way any of us can ever be “good enough.” It is only through the sacrifice of the sinless Savior that we are made righteous. God made Jesus “who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21). Eternal life is given because God’s gift of grace – not because of our good works (Ephesian 2:8-9).
Don’t let Satan trick you by giving you false hope that your good works will save you. It is only through Jesus’ work on the cross that you can have real freedom. – Cindy Hess Kasper
Accept the teaching of the world and hopeless you will be, but trust in God’s eternal plan if you want life that’s free. – Branon
We are not saved by good works, but by God’s work.
