Some might think in their hearts that just being good will take them to Heaven when they die. No, it won’t ! By the blood of Jesus Christ is the only way to God. Good works: Such as giving, donations for a worthy cause, volunteer work; these won’t get you there. These are good and well needed helps and works, but these are not salvation (saving of a soul).
Only believing Jesus died on the cross for your sins, asking forgiveness to God through Jesus Christ and inviting him to live in your heart (a heart change). Jesus Lord inside your heart – This is salvation. By the blood of Jesus is this possible. Then, from here on out, it’s a faith walk and you will know you are saved from the feeling you feel that you have never felt before. This feeling is God inside of your heart. A feeling of peace and serenity.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by Grace are you saved through faith; And that not of yourselves:it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
