What You Have to Do to Go to Heaven

August 16

For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

Romans 6:14

I was talking to a man and sharing with him about the grace of God. So I asked him, “If you were to stand before God and He said to you, ‘Why should I let you into heaven?’, what would you say?” He sat there for a good minute in deep thought.

Finally, he broke the silence and said, “Well, I suppose I’d say if anybody deserves to be here, I do.” Just then, the man’s face turned as white as a ghost as he was able to process what had just left his mouth. So we started talking about sin, and he eventually retracted his statement.

None of us go to heaven because we deserve to go. It’s all a work of the grace of God. I wouldn’t trust the best five minutes of my life to get me to heaven because it simply wouldn’t be good enough. That’s a huge problem for anyone trusting in good works to get to heaven.

Fully trusting God’s grace for salvation can be difficult because we’re so wired with a “get-what-we-deserve” mentality. But in Christ, you don’t get what you deserve… praise God! Live in the rest and acceptance that God has given you in Christ. Trust that the work is done and you’re His forever!

TRUST IN GOD’S GRACE – NOT GOOD WORKS – FOR ETERNAL LIFE. IT’S THE ONLY THING THAT’S GOOD ENOUGH!

About PowerPoint

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church — a nearly 37,000-member church with three campuses in the Dallas and North Texas region. Through PowerPoint Ministries, Dr. Graham offers practical, biblical steps on how to tap into God's power for successful Christian living.

About Jack Graham

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Dr. Jack Graham in Plano, Texas. Dr. Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with more than 33,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are you Fit for Life? and Powering Up. Courageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
