When people are asked if they will go to heaven when they die; many will respond, “I hope I’m good enough” or, “I haven’t killed anybody or stolen anything. Those kind of answers are so far from correct. We do not get into heaven by our goodness or the lack thereof. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. There are none righteous, no not one.
It is in Christ that we find salvation from hell and the gift of eternal life in heaven for eternity. God will wipe away every tear and their shall be no more death, no more sorrow, nor crying, neither shall their be any more pain, for the former things are passed away. All things will become new.
Jesus was the only God/man; meaning fully God and fully man, to ever walk on this dusty earth. It is in Him alone that we find salvation. There is no other way by which men may be saved. Salvation is not found in good works, not found in obeying all the commandments (That’s impossible), not found in acts of kindness. All those things are wonderful can be the result of the indwelling of God’s Holy Spirit, but they will not bring salvation to any lost soul.
Ephesians 2:8-9 says; “It is by grace you are saved through faith, that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.”
It is through faith in Jesus Christ the only “Good Man,” that we can live and move and have our being, both now and in eternity.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord thank You for the grace you bestow on all who believe in You alone for their salvation. Thank You Lord for saving a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind but now I see. IN Jesus Name. Amen
