we are saved by grace through faith, yeah, but what does that entail?
its not what most people generally think (do good things, work hard, etc, etc).face the facts: heaven is impossible to get into. but with God, all things are possible :) (which is the grace and faith thing)and people have different views on other ways to get into heaven (what you have to/should do). theres isnt really a general thing; its not set in stone.from a personal point of view, it entails loving God with your whole being and showing the world who he is (but thats just me :) )not sure f any of this helped, but i hope it did!!
REPENTANCE REPENTANCE REPENTANCE!! daily repentance for sin! (luke 9:23: Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross DAILY and follow me.) repentance isnt just "God forgive me!" but it means to turn from sin and turn towards Godhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYN--nc0Id8
it is also apparent that we have to do Gods will:Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. matthew 7:21
Just woke up a bit ago lol. Ephesians 2:8,9The thing is that people say they believe, and continue to live how they live. if you do then you do not truly believe. If you did then you would want to do what the Lord says. The works do not get you into heaven, but they help assure your salvation. Trying to stop sinning because you dont want to isnt going to get you saved. Faith gets you saved, and wanting to quit sinning because you hate sin is an evidence of salvation.
I agree with you all: We have to follow Gods will, to love him, to repent ourself, to be faithful and to want to quit sinning. (We"ll never quit sinning, because we"re not perfect, but we have to do our best)
sounds good, so how do we do Gods will?
living by the Word of God, not just parts and take out parts we dont want to do. We no longer own ourselves when we come to Christ, we are sold to him to follow him. Our desires become what God desires. We no longer want what we used to want.
Yes, and let us being guided by God
Romans 10:9!Love it. If we believe in our hearts that Christ is risen and confess with our mouth the Jesus is Lord we will be saved.Glory to the risen Lord Jesus!
