Not every one that says,…. Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. â€” Holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. â€” Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.Â Â For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that you shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Â But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see far off, and has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall.
By grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.
â€”Daily Light on the Daily Path
As much as we can hope, pray, beg, borrow or steal, not a one of us can enter the Kingdom of Heaven without the grace of God and the faith that God sent His only Son to die for us, for the forgiveness of our sins!Â Amen!
