Good is Good Enough?
Many Christians Have Difficulty Answering This Question:
Biblically, we know we’re never ‘good enough.’
Practically, many still wonder if they’ve been ‘good

Promise for Our Salvation
To get a clear picture
of our salvation we need to balance God’s grace and our
faith while we stand on God’s promise. Ephesians
No One is Good Except God
One Is ‘Good’ …
The world (our society) tells us each person is
Jesus didn’t get the memo: He says just the opposite … “no
one is good except God alone.” Mk.
The Bible says that all are under sin. Rom.
By works of the Law no flesh will be justified … Rom.
Balancing Grace and Faith
By Grace Through Faith Ephesians
God has given (gift) His salvation as revealed through the gospel.
3:16; Rom. 1:16
man hears the saving message and believes God’s promise of
is Not to be Abused
Shall we sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! Rom.
No, we have died to sin and will not use God’s grace as a
vice to sin.
In Christ: No Condemnation
Our minds are set on the Spirit. Rom.
We’re freed from the law of sin/death. Rom.
7:24; 8:3, 10-14
We call God “Abba! Father!” Rom.
In Christ: nothing separates us from Him! v.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts
in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my
song I shall thank Him. (Ps
to God in the church by Christ Jesus
