Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Many people are busy trying to work their way, or earn their way into heaven. That is bound to be very stressful because how in the world would you know when you reached the right point. If you ever came to the point to where you felt like you had earned your way into heaven you would then lose it because Pride is a sin.
Salvation is by God's grace through faith. We are saved by believing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He died in our place and paid our sin debt and then rose again victorious over death hell and the grave. It is through faith in Him an the acceptance of a gift that I do not deserve that I am saved. I am justified by my faith, which was also a gift from God.
Knowing that Jesus paid it all and I owe it all to Him gives me peace. He promised me, an I believed Him. That is all I can ever do.
