Justification

Romans 3:23-25 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and we are justified by His grace, through the redemption, which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood to be recieved by faith. This was to show God's righteousness..."

There are two things that we need to have to get to heaven:
(1). Righteousness.
(2). No sin.
We don't have them! So somebody needed to live a perfect life for us... Uh, hello... Christ! This is called "The Atonment."= Where God took our place, took our sin, and gave us His righteousness. (Good deal, uh?)

Now... do we get to heaven by works?
Yes... yes,yes,yes,yes! But it is not by our works that we do, but Jesus'! (Duh.)

So what had to happen about two thousand years ago, about a half-mile outside of Jerusalem?
Jesus had to die on the cross! Isn't it great!

All for the glory of God,
~Kade
