Heaven Doesn't Cost Money

God's gift is free:

Heaven's a free gift... most reject.

Donations, charity-giving, and Church tithing won't save you.

  • Whoever's trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you've been blocked from Christ; you've fallen from grace. (Galatians 5:4)

  • I'll expose your righteousness and good deeds. None will benefit you. (Isaiah 57:12)

  • Peter replied: "May your money perish with you for thinking God's gift can be bought with money." (Acts 8:20)

You can't earn Heaven.

Self-righteousness is false-righteousness.
Humans need God's righteousness.

  • But also for us, God's righteousness will be credited if we believe on him that raised Jesus our Lord from the dead; (Romans 4:24)

  • We're all like an unclean thing. All our righteous acts are like filthy rags. We fade like leaves, our sins have taken us away like the wind. (Isaiah 64:6)

  • Look at the proud one; whose soul isn't right within him: but the righteous will live by faith. (Habakkuk 2:4)

The gospel shares how to be saved for Heaven.
The gospel: Jesus died (paying sin penalty), got buried, and was risen.

Trusting more for Heaven is self-righteousness, which doesn't save you.

  • So we're made right with God by faith, not by obeying the law. (Romans 3:28)

  • Salvation's in nobody else: God hasn't given another name under Heaven that we must be saved with. (Acts 4:12)

  • That's why I said you'll die in your sins: unless you believe that I Am, you'll die in your sins. (John 8:24)
