heaven was through our own goodness, then none of
us could be saved. As the Bible says about heaven, "Nothing impure will
ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful,
but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life" (Revelation

our sins upon Himself when He died on the cross for us. We
deserve to die -- but He died in our place. This is how much God
loves us! Don't depend on yourself or your goodness to save you,
but by faith trust Christ alone for your salvation today.

God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God (Jn.

What is he, if not the Lamb of God?
Listen to him: I am

shepherd lays down his
life for the sheep. He who is a
hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not,
sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf
snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he
