What a Gift!
Romans 3-5
August 16, 2009
New Testament Romans

Hard work is rewarded with wages because a person has earned it. But when it comes to the matter of righteousness and the reward of heaven, they cannot be earned. Thus, you cannot work to achieve them. That’s because those things are gifts-gifts from God-that can only be received by faith. When we strive to earn God’s favor or when we believe that our works will gain us access to heaven, we nullify the cross. Forgiveness, salvation, and the reward of heaven are all freely given by God to all who believe by faith in Jesus Christ.
