You cannot earn your way into heaven or even into God’s good books. Being good holds no weight compared with the overwhelming weight of sin. One small sin cannot be paid off by a life-time of good works, it is that serious. God didn’t send His only son to die for something that a little bit of goodness could pay for. He sent His son because there was no other way. Sin has a price and that price is death. It is that serious. Yet God has paid that price for us, He has rescued us from death, He has redeemed our lives through the death of His only son, Jesus Christ. The price has been paid. Thank you Jesus.
