On Salvation By Works

With a child’s tools…

Genesis 11:4  And they said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven,

This is actually what you are trying to do if you try through your efforts to reach heaven. Your efforts with your toys couldn’t build a dog house. Only God has the ability to make a way and He did it through the death of His Son. Your efforts cannot wipe out your sins. God paid for those sins through Jesus Christ in order that He might give the righteousness of Jesus to you. By this means when you get to heaven and you’re asked why you should be let in, you can say I have the righteousness of Jesus the Son of God. Turn from your sin and rebellion against God, ask God for forgiveness based on Jesus death and resurrection, and proclaim Him as your Lord and King.
