Part 4, Conclusion - Originally Published 2002-11-09
A lot of us believe that if we do enough good works as Jesus did, that we could work our way to Heaven. If our good works outweigh our bad works, we think that we will be okay. If that were the case, then why did Jesus have to die? Why would God have to send his only Son, whom he loved, to die a horrible death, if we could save ourselves?
Hebrews 10:10 says,"And by that will we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." (NIV)
If we recognize our sinful condition and believe that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son as an offering to die on the cross for our sin, we will be saved. If we recognize daily how much God loves us, we will abide in Him daily. If we abide in Him daily, we will have His heart for the lost.
Because we have received the most valuable gift anyone could ever receive, good works flow out of or lives, in love for God and other people. Our love for God should lead us to share Christ with others. Just as a bride speaks highly of her husband to others, we should speak highly to others of the love of God for all and the gift of salvation He has given to us through the saving work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
So now how do I identify myself? What does my resume say? Does my heart show that I am guilty of loving God and others?
