For by Grace

In Eph 2:8-10, Paul introduces a very important thought.  We are saved through grace and not works.  Today we live in a world where many people believe that they can work their way to heaven or that they will be graded on a scale or a curve.  They believe that if they do enough good deeds God will have to let them into heaven.  They also believe they are better or a little more good than the other guy.  The problem is that God does not grade on a curve or scale our good deeds with our bad ones.  God has only one system of judgment.  Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal savior or not?  Did you accept Jesus into your life or not?  Jesus is God’s way to deal wtih sin.  If we could have saved ourselves than there would have been no reason for Jesus to come and die for our sins on the cross.  Because we could not save ourselves Jesus came and died in our place.  It is that simple.  So today do not get fooled by some feel good guru who tells you that you have the ability in yourself to get to heaven.  You don’t so come God’s way or at the end of life you will be very surprised where you end up.
