Your good works will not save you or bring you into My presence, says the LORD. For good works will not give you access to Me. Your faith does. It is your faith in Me that pleases Me. It is your faith that causes you to stand, complete in Me. For I alone Am your righteousness, and I Am your holiness. I Am the One who sanctifies you by My Spirit, and I have brought you into My presence because of your trust in My finished work on the cross and shed blood for you. It is My blood that sanctifies you, and makes you clean and whole. You cannot please Me without believing in Me, and trusting that My Word is truth. I Am your sufficiency, and I Am your all, in all, says the LORD.
I will reward your good works that you do for My kingdom and for My glory, says the LORD. But My gift of salvation, healing and deliverance cannot be accomplished by you through good works. It is your faith in Me that will save you, heal you, deliver you and give you every blessing that I have for you. A gift is a gift, and I Am your unspeakable gift that brings you into My kingdom as a servant-child. Let your labors for My kingdom be out of a heart of love and devotion to Me, and be diligent in your service to Me, not out of duty, but ardent desire to whole-heartedly follow Me, says the LORD.
