I’m sure you’re familiar with the phrase, “God helps those who help themselves.”
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. When it comes to God’s grace, believing that we can help work our way to Heaven is fatal. Ant yet, it’swhat all other religions teach and, unfortunately, what many who claim the name Christian, also believe. When we’re sharing our faith in Christ, the point that Heaven is totally free and undeserved is critical. As the Bible tells us clearly from Romans six verse twenty-three “the gift of God is eternal life” and Ephesians two verses eight and nine remind us that we’re saved by grace through faith . . . it’s not of works . . . lest any man should boast. There is nothing we can do to earn God’s favor due to our sin. The gift of Heaven requires Something outside of ourselves. And that something is Jesus Christ. We have a video that will help you explain to someone what it means to transfer their trust from their own good works to Jesus. To watch it, visit us at ShareLife.today.
