Good Enough to Go to Heaven?

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to
present you before his glorious presence without fault.
                                      —Jude 1:24

You wonder if you are good enough to go to heaven.

You aren’t.

That’s why you have to depend on his righteousness, not yours. “For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed” (Rom. 1:17). Not a righteousness of your own, “but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God” (Phil. 3:9).

When you responded in faith to the gospel, God declared you righteous.

You were not made righteous, but declared righteous.

The righteousness of Christ was “credited” to your account (Rom. 4:24). “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21).

Good enough to go to heaven?


Going to heaven because of his grace?


Grace meets you where you are,
but doesn’t leave you where it finds you.
