RCL Daily Devotions written by Dr. Kimberly Leetch from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
Question: What must I do to inherit eternal life?
Answer: Nothing. You can't.
Question: But aren't I a good person?
Answer: Even if you follow all the laws and rules, give away everything you own, and live as perfectly as is humanly possible, you will still fail to earn it.
Question: So, how do I earn it?
Answer: You don't. It's a gift. Impossible for you to earn. Only God's to give.
Question: So, why be good?
Answer: Goodness fosters goodness. Positivity fosters positivity. Be good because it's good to do so.
Accept the gift of eternal life because God offers it freely.
