Craig Groeschel writes, “… we don’t have the potential of eternal life because we’re good—we have it because God is good.” Quoting from the Psalms, Romans 3:12 says, “there is no one who does good, not even one.” Yet the Bible says we were created in Christ Jesus for good works and we are to be eager to do good works. All the good I could and should do is not enough to win eternal life. Jesus dying on the cross for my sins is the gift of eternal life—not by good works so that I cannot boast.
