God’s grace is the only means by which we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven—there is no other way.

I’d be in big trouble if Karma was going to finally be my judge. It doesn’t excuse my mistakes, but I’m holding out for Grace. I’m holding out that Jesus took my sins onto the Cross, because I know who I am, and I hope I don’t have to depend on my own religiosity.1

graceHaving faith in Jesus and accepting God’s grace in your life is exactly how you receive the gift of salvation. It was because of His grace that He sent His beloved Son to be a sacrifice for our sins.

Jesus died on the cross because we would never be able to pay the price of our sins. Only Jesus, who lived a perfect life, could be worthy enough to pay this price.
