It is said that there are about forty two hundred religions in the world. But there are only two- the “do” religion and the “done” religion. All “do” religions teach that by doing good works we can prepare ourselves for the next life. Do this, or do that, and gain God’s favour. But the Bible clearly informs us that there’s nothing we can do to please God because we are separated from Him by our wrong-doing, our sin. But thankfully, what we can’t do, Jesus has already done by dying for our sins on the cross. He cried out from that old rugged cross, “It is finished.” Everything needed to forgive our sins and bring us into a proper relationship with God has been done. Paul explained that it’s “by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, not by works…” Christ has done all we need.
