Ephesians 2:8 Our love for God cannot save us, but His love for us can. It is because of His love that we are given His grace to enter the kingdom of heaven.
There is nothing we can do, by ourselves, to get to Heaven. The only way to Heaven is through faith in Jesus Christ, who died in our place, in your place, that we might all have eternal life. John 3:16 tells us “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son...” ~ because of God's love for us, Jesus was sent to bear our sins. Jesus was sent, He who had no sin was sent, so that we would be freed from the slavery of sin.
Jesus was sent to die in your place, so that you would choose to live for Him! God has known all of His children since the beginning of time. Nothing we can do will ever change the amount of love God has for us. As if His love is not enough, God gives us His grace to move us towards His own will. His grace brings us towards a closer relationship with Him, and towards fulfilling the plan He has for us. Run into His arms today! He is waiting for you!
