Salvation comes only by the grace of God and only to those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He came to earth as a man, lived a perfect life, was crucified for our sins, bore them to the grave, rose again on the third day and sits at the right hand of God. You must have faith in Jesus to have salvation through grace. Every human being is courted by God to come to Him, to see His Son Jesus and to know and to love Him. God’s grace draws us all, gives us all the inherent knowledge that He is God and that there can be no other God.

Therefore, it can never be by our design that we are saved, we can never take credit for any actions that are done through the grace of God. Any good things that we do, we do because of our faith in Jesus Christ and to bring glory to His name. Good done for any other reason or any other purpose can be used by God for His glory but will not be counted as glory for your name in heaven. If you seek your reward on earth you will lose your reward in heaven.
