Galatians 3:11

Galatians 3:11 - is clear that no one can ever be right with God by trying to keep the law... (NLT)

This translation makes it really clear. You can't get right by God by being a good person. It just doesn't work that way. We need to have a relationship with God, which we can only have because Jesus died on the cross to pay for it.

I'm sure there's some benefit in being a good person. But it's not going to get me into heaven. What will is my relationship with God. Just like in careers, it's not what you do, it's who you know.
