How are we saved by doing good deeds?

For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourself, but is a gift from God, not by works, so that no one may boast. For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works that God prepared ahead of time for us to accomplish. Q5. How can a good person go to hell? A good person cannot go to hell, because all people are capable of evil. However, if an innocent person is punished for the sins of another, then that would be wrong and violate justice.

In conclusion, only those who accept Jesus' sacrifice for their sins will be saved from hell. Everyone else will go to hell.

Are we saved by work?

But, having been rescued by grace through faith, we are saved for good deeds. For we are his handiwork, made in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has predestined for us to do (Ephesians 2:8-10).

Work is a means to an end. We work to provide for our needs and those of others. We can't keep eating cake every day because it tastes so good! Work is a necessary evil that we all have to live with. It provides the means to survive and meet our needs.

But what about happiness? Isn't getting a job so I can be happy guaranteed to make me unhappy?

Not at all! Getting a job is a great way to achieve happiness. Here's why...

First, working gives you a sense of accomplishment. When you go to work each day and accomplish something useful, it makes you feel good about yourself and your life.

Second, working allows you to contribute to society. By helping others, you are giving them hope who may not have any else to turn to. Also, knowing they can rely on you giving your best effort makes you feel important and valuable.

Third, working gives you a sense of purpose. No matter how big or small your role, there is always something that needs to be done.

Do you have to do good work to be saved?

And to one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is reckoned as righteousness. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God--not because of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:8-10 ESV

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God-- not as a reward for what you have done, but because he wants you to be saved-- so that being charged with sin you might be justified by his grace through faith.

Galatians 2:21-24 ESV

The Spirit himself testifies together with our spirit that we are children of God; and if children, then heirs-- heirs of God and joint owners with Christ. For what son is there whom his father does not acknowledge? And how many times has Jesus declared to the people in Israel: "I am the Son of God"?

Mark 12:29-31 ESV

Now when Jesus heard this, he said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers of this world lord it over their subjects, and their power is derived not from love but from fear. On the other hand, my kingdom is not of this world.

Why does the Bible say we are not saved by our works?

According to God's Word, we are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus, not by our own efforts or works (Ephesians 2:8-9). Grace alone implies that God loves, forgives, and saves us because of Christ's act, not because of who we are or what we do. We are saved by grace through faith, not by our good deeds or life choices. Our salvation is based on God's mercy, not our merit.

Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will have eternal life." (John 6:47) Jesus is referring to belief in Him as the only way to heaven, not some good work we can do to earn salvation. The Bible makes it clear that salvation is by grace through faith, not by our good deeds or life choices. It is also important to note that Jesus said "he who believes in me will never die," indicating that once we believe in Him, we will be saved from death.

God so loved the world that He gave His only Son so that everyone who believes in Him would have eternal life. This means that if you want to be saved from hell, you need to believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Savior.

People often think that they cannot be saved by grace because there is no way to keep faith alive except through one's actions.

How are we saved by the grace of God?

We are saved by God's grace, because grace cannot, by definition, be earned. We do not earn salvation; rather, we get it through faith. God's grace is sufficient to cover all sin (Romans 5:20). There are several examples in the Bible of people who were rescued from sinful origins. They included Noah, Daniel, Joseph, Moses, David, and Jesus himself. But even though they were saved by grace, they still needed to keep trusting in Christ to save them. They could have stopped believing after they made mistakes or when things got hard, but they didn't give up.

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except by me." This means that there is no other path to take to reach God. Either you trust in him through faith in Jesus Christ or you don't. If you believe in him, then you will be saved from your sins; if you don't, then you will suffer the consequences of your actions.

What does saving by grace mean for us today? It means that we don't have to work to be saved. None of us are good enough to earn our way into heaven, so we need someone to take care of this for us. That person is Jesus Christ, and he has provided a way for us to be with him forever.

Are we saved by grace or work?

Faith on its own. Grace by herself. We are saved by grace through faith, not by our own efforts or works.

Can a person be saved without coming to Christ for salvation?

No one has ever been redeemed without first coming to Christ as a sinner. Oh, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please You are a miserable, lost sinner, destined for Hell! Your heart is completely dark. You've hardened your heart, you've fought God's call, and you've rejected Christ. But God loves you so much that He sent His only Son to pay the price for your sins. And since Jesus died on the cross for you and rose again, there is now no barrier between you and Heaven. There is nothing more you could do or believe that would make Him willing to accept you into his kingdom.

You must come to Christ through faith in order to be saved. Everyone who has ever lived was once without hope in hell. But everyone who has ever lived was also once without sin. Since Jesus took our sins upon himself when he died on the cross, we have now received forgiveness of our sins and assurance of salvation forever if we will only admit it and trust in him.

People can say all they want about prayer being answered through others or by simply believing right now, but this kind of thinking denies the perfect nature of God and the need for atonement. Only Jesus' death on the cross can take away our sins and provide eternal life.

Everyone comes to God through someone else.
