The very thought of humbling and accepting ourselves as spiritual beggars who are actually sinners in need of the Savior Jesus' cleansing blood to wash us clean and give us salvation from sin becomes the stumbling stone for many religious minded people who even say that they are Christians by birth.
God has no grandchildren but he has from the toddlers to juveniles to adults to old people as His children who have put their faith in Jesus death as the substitutional sacrifice before God for their own sins, and believe that He is the perfect redemption price for all their sins of past, present and future time. Those who think that because of their Christian or religious heritage they automatically qualify to be God's sons and daughters are deceived if they are not born again and have not the Spirit of Christ within them.
God has given an equal opportunity for all humans to become His children, He himself has said in His Word, "12 But as many as received Jesus, to them God gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in Jesus' name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." (John 1:12-13, Paraphrased). Human tendency to work out our own salvation without accepting ourselves as sinners in need of the Savior is the root of pride that leads all of the religious minded people to go straight in to hell fire for eternity to be away from God and his goodness forever and ever.
God has clearly told that Jesus has paid the full price for all our past, present and future sins, and all we need to do is to believe that truth and accept that "8 ... by grace we have been saved through faith, and that not of ourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works that we do or have done for God, lest anyone should boast about it before God, and be destroyed in pride before God like Satan. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them by the strength that comes from Him and Him alone." (Eph 2:8-9, Paraphrased).
The next time you meet a friend that is self-righteous to be saved by his own works, share the truth of the full Gospel of Jesus Christ with them and pray for them to get saved from sin and destruction that awaits all humans who are apart from Jesus Christ to face death at the end alone. May God open our inner eyes and ears of our heart to fully understand to lean on the perfect redemption of full price that Jesus Christ paid for us, obey the Gospel by walking in the strength of God as saints who love one another, having forgiveness and being kind to each other, doing the good works that God has beforehand prepared for us who are saved. You cannot save yourself by your good works, but once you are saved you can keep doing the God prepared good works to glorify God in your day to day life through the grace that comes from God through Jesus Christ who died for your sins, rose up on the third day by God's power to make you stand just as if you have never sinned before God at all. Now that you have been made a saint in Christ Jesus, walk worthy of His calling by hating sin and loving God for His grace through faith. This is actually the full gospel.
Now that JESUS HAS SAVED US IF WE HAVE ACCEPTED OURSELVES AS SINNERS IN NEED OF THE SAVIOR BEFORE GOD, He has sacrificed Himself for us and have already walked before us as OUR PERFECT EXAMPLE OF FAITH IN ACTION to please God by doing His will, let us also likewise learn to do God's will and follow Jesus Christ in our character to please God and enjoy a eternity of friendship and favor with Him.
"Faith is like the hand of the beggar that takes the gift while adding nothing to it." ~~~Thomas Chalmers~~~
