The Platform of Grace (Seven)

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9, NKJV)
How much good works did the theft on the cross have to enter into paradise? How much good works did the prodigal son have to be received back by his father? (It sure blew the mind of the elder brother. Just how many more elder brothers fill our churches and gatherings today?) How much good works did the Syro-Phoenician woman have to get healing for her daughter? (She did not even belong to the commonwealth of Israel.) And what about the woman bent over in the temple? What was Jesus' basis of healing her – her good works, or because she was a daughter of Abraham?

So, how much good works do you suppose you need?
