Works

Acts of service, not as a means to earn salvation (See also mercy, grace)

"Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."  Matthew 5:15-16

Object Talks

Can't Be Earned

Salvation is a free gift and canít be earned. No matter how hard we try, our own efforts are useless.

Fan the Flame

We should have a burning passion to let others see Jesus alive in us, but sometimes we need to fan the flame.

Fully Cleansed

It takes more than doing good things to be born again, it takes the cleansing blood of Jesus.

Impossible Reach

We build many things to help us reach difficult places. However, we can only reach Heaven through the love and forgiveness of Jesus.

Puzzles

Let Your Light Shine
