Christ’s work on the cross and what it means

Other religions may  believe they are accepted by God because of  their deeds, and for what they have done, but for Christianity that’s different, though Christian’s are still called to do and carry out the will of God, it’s not their deed’s that make them accepted by God, rather it’s what Christ did on the cross of which they are accepted.   Presbyterian pastor/preacher Timothy Keller put’s it like this in his  New York Time’s best seller “The Reason for God”: “Christians should expect to find nonbelievers who are much nicer, kinder, wiser and better than they are. Why? Christian believers are not accepted by God because of their moral performance, wisdom, or virtue, but because of Christ’s work on their behalf.”   Now, I feel it should be stated that part of accepting Christ as savior is understanding that you are called to do the will of  God, that’s when you are redeemed by the blood of Christ.

  1. I would also add that as a believer, we are equipped with the Holy Spirit that enables us to live godly lives. Our deeds then become an expression and an outpouring of gratitute and obiedience to Him…a result of our salvation.
