Works

The bible uses the word WORKS to describe a person's good behavior or doing good things. Doing good is very important for each person but doing good things will not earn forgiveness for sin or earn the person the right to enter heaven. The Bible says, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" (Titus 3:5)

Also, it states: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2)
