When they heard this, they came under deep conviction and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles: “Brothers, what must we do?”
Then he escorted them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
“Then I said, ‘What should I do, Lord?’“And the Lord told me, ‘Get up and go into Damascus, and there you will be told about everything that is assigned for you to do.’
Just then someone came up and asked Him, “Teacher, what good must I do to have eternal life?”

2 Samuel 7:3
So Nathan told the king, “Go and do all that is on your heart, for the Lord is with you.”
Even so, be strong, Zerubbabel”—this is the Lord’s declaration. “Be strong, Joshua son of Jehozadak, high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land”—this is the Lord’s declaration. “Work! For I am with you”—the declaration of the Lord of Hosts.

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of My Father in heaven.

If I had not done the works among them that no one else has done, they would not have sin. Now they have seen and hated both Me and My Father.
I have glorified You on the earth
by completing the work You gave Me to do.
“Men of Israel, listen to these words: This Jesus the Nazarene was a man pointed out to you by God with miracles, wonders, and signs that God did among you through Him, just as you yourselves know.
1 Corinthians 16:10
