“For by grace, you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”(Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV)
“He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,”(Titus 3:5 ESV)
I saw this on Facebook yesterday. Interesting and true:
“Let’s be clear.Author Unknown
If you end up in a burning hell for all eternity, it won’t be because you have a tattoo, or because you have a nose ring, or because you drink beer or smoke cigarettes, or because you spent time in prison. It won’t be because you didn’t do enough good deeds. It won’t be because you didn’t belong to the right church. It won’t be because of that dumb thing you did that you don’t want anybody to know about. It won’t be because of what anyone else did to you. It will be because you refused to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior! HE already paid for all the stupid stuff you have done and all the stupid stuff you are going to do when HE died FOR YOU on the cross and rose again! HE offers salvation as a FREE GIFT because, let’s face it, if it was up to us to earn it, we would have no chance. The gift of salvation is there for you to receive. The decision is totally up to you. The price for your sins has been paid, and the way to heaven for you has been made. AMEN”
That makes it pretty clear. So what’s your excuse?
Have a great day.
