Sometimes pretty words ain't always so true, and true words ain't always so pretty.

The Bible says, "But, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head--Christ--from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love." Eph 4:15-16

i.e., Moral people per se don't get into heaven, nor do religious people ..if that's all they've got. Falls far short. It's not religion + Christ that = entrance. Christ is all ya need - it's only forgiven people that get welcomed in. 

What does God say about all that? 

"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life." Tts. 3:5-7 nkjv

Done!.. by Jesus on the cross. Remember when Jesus said.. It is finished. Was not done.. by what we have earned but we still must make a choice to let Jesus in, and forgive, and save us. We can't save ourselves. Have you recieved His free gift? He doesn't offer it to any of us for all the points that we've tried to gain by punching the time clock at church etc. #AskInFaith 

But check it out.. after you have recieved free God's Gift by faith, that this the time to choose to be a witness for Christ. This is on His heart, so He will indeed help you. He can help you share your story so that others can have saving faith as well. Do ya have light from God inside of you yet? Hey, as opposed to merely stashin' it under a basket where no one can even profit from it.. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."  Matthew 5:16
