How to work your way to Heaven

the point of this post is obvious. You cannot work your way to heaven because it is a free gift from God.  He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5 nlt)

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.  (Ephesians 2:8 nlt)
