    Good works alone will not get us to heaven, in fact works has nothing to do with salvation. We are saved by God's grace alone. Salvation is a free gift from the Lord, and our works after that are our choice-though God does expect us to live by the book. Because of our sin, we are separated from God. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 The Penalty for our sin is death. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 The penalty for our sin was paid by Jesus Christ! But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 If we repent of our sin, then confess and trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved from our sins! For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13 ...if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9,10

    For God loveth the Righteousness he who loves God will obey his words until rapture. Jesus himself is the word of God who have come in flesh by the power of God. He who believes in him will not be perished but have everlasting life. Thanks to Jesus for his precious blood that shed for us. We are all sinners and have already been redeemed on the cross. Jesus made everything new no more pain, worries, curse and our sins was already forgiven. We must now believe in Jesus and obey his words for God 's words we recieved peace, joy, salvation. Without Christ in our life we are nothing and will not be saved.
