“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”
God’s law is perfect…an imperfect man cannot keep it. If you violate in one part, you are guilty of all parts. Man, in his own effort cannot gain eternity with God. So God offered up His Son to pay the price for our sins; to set us free from the law of sin and eternal death. We cannot earn heaven on our own merit…all we need to do is accept this free gift of forgiveness.
