What Must I Do to be Saved?
“You cannot buy salvation; you cannot earn righteousness. Salvation is the gift of God, and righteousness is the natural fruit of the spirit-born life of [a child of God] in the kingdom. You are not saved because you live a righteous life; rather is it that you live a righteous life because you have already been saved, have recognized [child] ship as the gift of God and service in the kingdom as the supreme delight of life on earth. When humans believe this gospel, which is a revelation of the goodness of God, they will be led to voluntary repentance of all known sin. Realization of [being a child of God] is incompatible with the desire to sin. Kingdom believers hunger for righteousness and thirst for divine perfection.”
“When men and women ask what shall we do to be saved, you shall answer, believe this gospel of the kingdom; accept divine forgiveness. By faith recognize the indwelling spirit of God (in you), whose acceptance makes you a [child] of God. Have you not read in the Scriptures where it says, ‘In the Lord have I righteousness and strength.’? Also, where the Father says, ‘My righteousness is near; my salvation has gone forth and my arms shall enfold my people.’ ‘My soul shall be joyful in the love of my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation and has covered me with the robe of his righteousness.’ Have you not also read of the Father that his name ‘shall be called the Lord our righteousness.’ ‘Take away the filthy rags of self-righteousness and cloth my son with the robe of divine righteousness and eternal salvation.’ It is forever true, ‘the just shall live by faith.’ Entrance into the Father’s kingdom is wholly free, but progress — growth in grace — is essential to continuance therein.”
