Thought For Today - October 2
What Good Thing Shall We Do?

     What good thing shall we do, that we may have eternal life? If we would enter into life we must keep and obey all the commandments of God.  There has never been any person on earth who has been able to keep and obey the commandments of God without fail except the Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore, if when God looks upon us, he must declare that - “There is none righteous, no, not one.  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  They are all gone out of the way.  They are together become unprofitable: there is  none that  doeth good, no, not one.” Romans 3: 10-12.  All have failed to keep and obey the commandments of God in one point or  another, if not in deed then in the thoughts and  intents of the heart.  Therefore, if left to himself,  mankind cannot inherit eternal life because.  “the wages of sin is death, but the  gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6: 23.
     Our only hope for salvation is in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, who kept the laws and commandments of God perfectly and obeyed the Father in every point of the law.  The Lord Jesus, the perfectly obedient son of God  offered himself for us as a sin sacrifice so that we, by receiving him as our savior and sin sacrifice could enjoy everlasting life.  “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corintthians 5: 21.  “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3: 16.
     The only way that we can have eternal life is through our  Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  No other way can we measure up with God.
     “And behold, one came and  said unto him, good master,what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?  And he said unto  him, why callest thou me good?  There is none good but one, that is God, but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.  He saith unto him, which?  Jesus said, thou shalt do no murder, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, honor thy father and thy mother, and thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.  The young man saith unto him, all these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?  Jesus said unto him, if thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me,  but when  the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.”  Matthew 19: 16-22.
