I want to stress that good works will not get you to heaven. Neither will going to church every Sunday.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” Ephesians 2;8 KJV
You can’t work your way to heaven, it is only by God’s good and perfect gift of salvation that we may go. We must have faith in God and we must have his grace.
“But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved” Acts 15;11 KJV
By grace we are saved.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”1John 1;7 KJV
Once he has taken His abode inside us, to make us whole and clean by his grace, He helps us to walk in the light, His light, so that we may reap the blessings from doing so. By focusing on Christ with everything we do, say, read, go and listen to, we are honoring Him.
If you ever wonder if something is pleasing to God, open up your Bible read and pray. He wants to lead us on His path but we must keep our eyes and hearts open to His love and guidance.
Have a wonderful weekend!
