While it is absolutely true that you cannot earn your way into heaven by your good works, that does not mean you shouldn’t help others once you are saved. In fact, once you are saved, you have even more reason to help others, especially to help them draw close—or closer—to God.

If you have read the Bible—or even if you haven’t—you probably know the story of the Good Samaritan. This strengthens my point. If you went from thinking you could earn your way into heaven to becoming a Christian, it doesn’t mean you should stop helping others. If no one helped anyone, there pretty much would be no Christians in the world, because no one is spreading the Word.

Most of you probably know all of this already, but it’s a point that needs to be made. We’re here to spread the Good News, and help those that are struggling on the side of the road.
