Most churches have members, usually referred as saints, who do a great deal for, or give a lot to the church. When one such member dies, the brothers and sisters in Christ usually remark that she has certainly earned God’s favor.
No One Earns Their Salvation
However, those brothers and sister are wrong. They actually do her a dis-service. Because her service was an expression of her love for Christ, not a payment or bribe to make Him love her.
None of us are saved because of our good works. Furthermore, we cannot earn God grace. Christ saves those who believe in God’s only begotten Son, out of His grace.
To summarize, the Daily Bread email message sent on 7/6/2022 says,
Titus 3:4, 5 – But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, (NASB)
