I am as good as many people that claim to be Christians, so why should I get "saved"?

Builders constantly use the level, a square and a plumb line because they are standards. It is important that we live by standards, not by comparisions. To say that a wall is just as straight as another wall or that a floor is just as level as another floor would not be a standard of true level or of straightness. Noone can claim health because he is feeling better than a diabetic or stronger than a cancer victim. To know how good or bad you are, you should measure yourself by Jesus Christ and what He has said. He is the only True Standard. When you answer to God, you will be judged in relation to Jesus. You are not saved or lost by the deeds of other people. God's Word states "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8,9) Jesus did not say to be "good" to be saved, He said to be "born again" (John 3:3). That is the"word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved....For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:8,9,13) The only way to heaven is by faith in Jesus Christ. You can accept Him today.
