On April 22, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined world leaders in Paris, ratifying a global treaty on climate change. But it’s been said that reducing the gas emissions by thirty percent is easier said than done. And here’s something to think about-regarding our spiritual welfare. It’s easier to say that someday we will make preparation for the next life, than actually doing so. Matthew referred to this tendency, quoting Jesus, writing, “These people draw near to Me with their mouth… but their heart is far from Me…teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.” One of these “doctrines of men” is the concept that we work our way to heaven when the Bible plainly says “by grace we are saved through faith, and not by works… it is the gift of God.” .
