Titus 3:4-5a says, “But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of works we have done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy…”
We must all be constantly reminded that salvation is a gift from God. No one can earn a gift last I checked.
Daniel 12:2 talking about the end times said, “And many of those who sleep (a euphemism for death) in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.”
Jesus said in John 5:28-29, “Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice, and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.”
