Are you a good person? Of course, you are a good person.
You may attend the church,
You may pray everyday,
You help those who are in need,
You serve in your community,
You religiously follow the church doctrines,
You obey God‘s laws, and
You do all the good deeds you can think of.
But how does God define good? Just because I am a good person does not mean I am saved.
Suppose you prepare an egg omelet. The eggs you cracked were rotten but you don‘t want to throw them away. To save the rotten eggs, you added fresh eggs to eliminate the rottenness. By doing so, did it really eliminate the eggs‘ rottenness? No, the rotten eggs were not made good – they remain rotten. They
even ruined the goodness of the fresh eggs. You can compare yourself and your good works to these eggs.
We are all sinners (Romans 3:23) and because of our sins, we became rotten eggs. You don‘t want to be thrown away in hell so you do good works. Your good works are the good eggs. No matter how much good works you do, they do not eliminate your sins and make you righteous. You still remain a sinner and thus cannot enter the kingdom of God because of your sins. Your good works cannot save you because these good works are like filthy rags before God (Isaiah 64:6) for they are done by you to make you self-righteous.
How can I be Saved?
Do I need I to stop doing good works? Of course not. Good works without Christ are just formalities.
The Bible repeatedly says that we are saved by God’s grace
through faith and NEVER by good works.
Here are some bible verses to guide you through:
Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
Repent ye therefore and be converted that your sins may be
Please pray this prayer if you want to be saved:
