Good Works Won't Do It

Updated on November 27, 2011

Good Works Won't Do It

Some people think when they work for The Lord,

And we know it's wonderful the work that they do.

They don't know when it comes to Heaven's Gate,

After all they have done work won't get them through.

Though some people may work hard all of their life

In hopes that Heaven's Glories they can all share

I hope that they will find out before it is too late

That only a Redeemed Soul will ever get you there.

Good works won't do it ,only a repentant heart.

A heart with God's forgiveness will share His Estate.

Good works coupled with God's Love is the only key.

No backdoor to Heaven, you must enter the Gate!


If good works was all that it took to get to

Heaven there would would be many more

people there .there are many kindhearted

folks around that are always helping in so

many ways but they need more than kind

hearts to get in Heaven.Hopefully they find

out before it is too late.!

      ZZron, Thank you for your nice comments .I appreciate them . I just went back to your profile and I was feeling good about the response I was getting until I saw how many you had .I am surprised at the amount of followers and hubs some people have ,Looks like I have a very long way to go , but that was not the reason I started writing poems. I never had an idea that the poems would go so far away as they have , i just hope they touch some hearts on the way.Thanks for writing,clara

      So very beautiful and so very true. Some people have the wrong idea about heaven and do not understand what the Bible says about heaven and how to get there.

      May I just offer the Bible Scripture, John 3:16."Whosoever believeth in Jesus Christ shall not perish but have everlasting life." I believe this may be the place to start. Thank you for beautiful and inspiring poem.

      Hi Lone Star, Thank you so much for your comments, it is nice to know that you may be doing something right.I have written many poems over the years but I just wrote them and I never expected they would go to so many places as they are now.I did have a website for the poems for a few months but it didn't work out very well.God has given me so many over the years and I guess this is the time for them,hopefully they touch hearts and bring them to Jesus. Ego, sometimes the last thing to go .Always good to hear from you ,clara

      Beautifully put, Clara! Now if we can only get more Christians to understand that their interpretation of scripture is not equal to that of God.

      So many feel that they have already arrived, but they have only taken a few steps on the road. Even after performing miracles to the glory of the Lord, there is yet much to do to gain salvation. There are so many possessions of the flesh we must offload, especially our oft-prized sense of entitlement -- ego.
