Are you, like the person from Brazil my wife is chatting with now, trying to be good enough to please God, and hoping you just might make it to heaven someday?
No one just barely makes it to heaven, and no one just barely misses it. Those who put their faith in Christ alone to save them make it without any close calls.
Those who try their best to earn it fail infinitely and have absolutely no shot at it.
You can’t earn heaven, because God doesn’t even offer it as a reward for services rendered. He only makes it available to someone as an undeserved gift of His grace.
Hell is the only destination possible for anyone who gets what he earns.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” God’s word says.
Christ died for your sins and rose from the dead. Believe and receive that gift. It is your only hope.
