Pada hari ini, Daily Devotional dari David McGee, Calvary Chappel, mengungkapkan hal yang luar biasa.
Preacher yang satu ini selalu menulis dengan singkat, efektif dan mengena ke akar-akarnya.

Mari saya bagikan, “To Do”,

Romans 5:6

“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.”
NKJV

What do you have to do in order to be righteous with God?
Do you have to die a martyr’s death before God will allow you into paradise? No.
Do your good deeds need to outweigh your bad deeds for God to allow you into heaven? No.
Do you have to be at peace with nature when you die, so that God will absorb you into heaven? No.
What if you have done enough works, will God then allow you into heaven? No.

Man pridefully wants to play a part in his salvation. We invent hurdles to jump, thinking we can earn God’s approval.
I don’t want what I’ve earned because according to Romans 6:23 I’ve earned death. I need God’s grace.

2 Corinthians 5:21 “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” NLT

Every world religion is based on what you ‘have to do’ to convince God you deserve to go to heaven… that is, except one – Biblical Christianity. You see, the Bible tells us that God has already done everything for you. Your part is simply to accept Jesus’ gift to you. He did the work, dying on the cross for your sins. Friend, you don’t have to reach for God because He’s already reaching out for you. Please don’t reject Him.

  1. Well, since God has done everything for us, the rest is of course left to us to choose. If we wish to get His Heaven, there is no other way than respect, follow and obey His guidance and directions through deeds…..otherwise we’ll lose the way!

    For me, to do respect, follow and obey Him is not of to convince Him but hopefully for my own safety and eternal happiness.

    regards

      the article above which is quoted from David McGees Daily Devotional mentions to deserve to go to heaven already done by Christ, thats the point.

      Heaven was opened, to all of us, …by Jesus
      so “To Do” is not to reject Christ,..not to reject this grace of God,…
      nothing to do to open the heavens, DONE already.

      but when you choose to receive Him, than prove to the world you have received Christ, show to the world that you are the one, lets light the world since The Light you have recived is The Light of the world…

      Thats the differece, comparing to other religion lets say.

  2. @ Om Parhobass,

    To Do, is to do belief, receive and praise The Lord, while to belief is to respect, follow and obey His guidance and directions with deeds…….

    I believe we would hardly be accepted and reach that left opened Heaven though we pay our respect and praise Him, if…. instead of enlightening the world, we do nothing for others, or at the contrary, we contaminate our lives with various moral turpitude ….

      so what you are believing now?, The opened heaven by Grace of The Lord, or you are trying to convince God by your deeds to open the Heaven?

      I believe we would hardly be accepted and reach that left opened Heaven though we pay our respect and praise Him, if…. instead of enlightening the world, we do nothing for others, or at the contrary, we contaminate our lives with various moral turpitude ….
      to follow/to prise God is to love one with others, since God is Love, so dont reject Love
