Not Good Enough

By   •   March 10

cross with light

People go through many doors which do not lead to the Kingdom of God. Some try the door of good works. They say, “I can get to heaven if I only do enough good things, because God will honor all the good things I do.” It’s wonderful to do good things, but we cannot do enough good things to satisfy God. God demands perfection, and we’re not perfect. If we’re going to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, we have to be absolutely perfect. You ask, “Well, how will I ever be perfect?” We need to be clothed in the righteousness of the Lord Jesus. There is one door to the Kingdom and it’s Jesus. And we will never get to heaven unless we go His way.

What Is “The Gospel” and What Does It Mean for Your Life?

“Am I Good Enough to Get Into Heaven?” Read Billy Graham’s Answer.

Prayer for the day

Almighty God, there is nothing I can do to be worthy of Your love, and yet You have given me Jesus—my Savior and Lord!

    Amen, many times I have talked to people or seen examples of trying to get to heaven by their own merit.

  2. Rosario Lewis says:

    Yes Jesus is the only way to heaven. We can never be good enough to go to heaven. Neither keeping the laws of O. T send us to heaven. The only way to heaven is thru our faith in Jesus. Jesus has already took our judgement apoun himself and paid the price on the cross for sins of all humanity from beginning to end. He has washed us with his own blood. Though we are sinful and dirty still we know that through the grace of God we are saved. Now is the time, you may not get another chance , accept Jesus as Lord and saviour of your life. Turn to Him, tell him father I am sorry, Lord forgive me. Today give your life to Jesus. Revelation 3:20, Jesus is standing at the door of your heart invite him today into your life, family and home. Amen

  4. Gerry says:

    God’s Holy Word is abundantly clear and it is never changed. There have been many people who have attempted to be good enough ….thinking this would be their ticket to heaven. Unfortunately this is not the truth. The truth is once again found in Scripture. Jesus Christ is the one and only way to heaven.

  5. Kevin Kendall says:

    Jesus Truly Is The Way>The Truth> and The Life..!! The ONLY Way, Truth, and Life..!!

  6. Joyce Paul says:

    ” Faith never knows where it is being led, but it Loves n knows The One Who is leading.” PRAISE LORD!!! Amen.

    Mr. Graham was in Fargo, ND in the late 80s and I sang in the choir. I have a wonderful story to tell about children coming forward. I’ve told this story to many people and the memory of that time still makes me think about Jesus.
