You are here: Christian Doctrine Seeking God ARE YOU GOOD ENOUGH?

Good enough for what, you may ask! Good enough to enter Heaven when your time comes. Your family and friends may think of you as a good person, perhaps doing some good deeds, even giving to charities and relieving some of the poor and helping others. But this is not good enough to go to Heaven. No-one can get to heaven by their so-called “good works.” So if we cannot earn our way to Heaven, how can we get there?

The Bible says “There is none Righteous, No. not one. There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable, there is none that doeth good. No, not one."
Romans 3 v. 10-12

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14 v. 12

You may say that you know God is LOVE so how can He not send me to Heaven?

Absolutely no-one deserves to go to Heaven to be with the Lord Jesus Christ for eternity. You and I are sinners of the deepest dye and God cannot look upon SIN. We have all broken His Holy Law (His commandments) and even if we have broken only one, we have then broken them all. He is Holy and Righteous and we are all sinful and unrighteous. So how can our sins be blotted out?

The Lord Jesus Christ came to this earth to die – absolutely sinless Saviour – to bear the sins of many on the Cross of Calvary. He came to redeem His people from their sins and suffered and died in their place. He is the good Shepherd and the Shepherd gave His life for His sheep. Are you one of His sheep?

If so, you will be brought by God to see your wicked sins and repent of them all, willingly accepting that you are so unworthy and deserve nothing. You can do NOTHING to save yourself, for it is a work of God's sovereign grace and mercy to transform a sinner into a saint. SALVATION IS OF THE LORD. He alone is God and there is none other. The God of the Bible is the only true and living God and all the rest of gods are nothing but idols. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven. He said in John 14 v6 “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, AND NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME.”

So dear friend, think seriously about your standing before the Holy God right now. Time is short. Take a KJV Bible and read it and see if God opens your eyes, because if He does not, then it will be a dead letter to you, but if God, in His sovereign act of mercy, shows you it is the Truth, then the Holy Spirit has shined on it, and you will be brought to Life. I can vouch that there is nothing like it on earth, that can transform your living and give you such JOY, in believing.
