God Says, Part 4

Salvation Bible Basics

‘For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.’ Now hear what God says. We try to impress God with our good works, but God says, ‘You are not saved by yourself or by your good works. If you were, you would boast.’

All the good deeds in the world will not save you if you have broken God’s law. If you have offended in one point of the law you are guilty of it all. If you have ever committed one sin, you are guilty. It doesn’t matter how many good deeds you do in your life, it will never make you right with God. If those good deeds could make you right with God, you would strut through Heaven boasting of your goodness and patting yourself on the back. God says our good works will not get us into Heaven.
