Bible Way to Heaven

 

Do you know 100 percent for sure that if you died today, you would go to heaven? The Bible tells us you can know. Keep reading to learn how simple it is to receive God's gift of eternal life.


You Can Know!
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." - 1 John 5:13

God gave us His word so that you can know that you have eternal life, a place in heaven reserved for you, and your sins forgiven forever.



Understand Your Condition.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" -Romans 3:23

Every one of us has committed something that God says we are not supposed to do, or not done something God says we should do.  When we disobey God, we have sinned.  Nobody is a "good person" (Romans 3:10).



Understand The Penalty for Sin.
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" -Romans 5:12

 

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." -Revelation 21:8

"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."  -Revelation 20:14

 

The penalty of our sins comes in two parts.  Everyone suffers the first penalty, which is physical death.  We are also required to suffer the other penalty, which is called the "second death."  The second death is an eternity of separation and torment in hell.  

BUT, the story does not end here. God does not want anyone to die and go to hell, and He made a way out.



Believe Jesus is the Son of God Who Died for You.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." -John 3:16

God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to pay the penalty for our sins. He lived a perfect life, shed His blood and died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again from the dead three days later. JESUS CHRIST has paid the eternal payment of your sins for everyone. Nobody has to die and go to hell. We have a choice.

"...but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 6:23 

 

God made forgiveness of sins and eternal life a free gift to us.  The price was paid for us by Jesus on the cross.  Jesus has done all the work involved in securing salvation for us.  If you are willing to accept God's gift, God is more than willing to give it to you.



Trust Jesus Christ Alone for Salvation.

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" - Acts 16:31

 

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." -Romans 10:13

 

Receiving God's gift of forgiveness and eternal life is simple. 

"Believe" means "to depend upon," or "to put one's weight upon."  It is more than a mental knowledge that Jesus is real, or that He is God's Son.  It is putting your faith in Jesus alone to take care of salvation.  

 

Jesus is willing to forgive you of every sin in your life and give you a place in heaven forever, if you are willing to accept Him.  Pray to Jesus right now, admitting that you are a sinner and that you trust Him alone to save you and take you to heaven when you die. If you are unsure as to what to say, let us help you word a prayer:

"Dear God, I know I am a sinner. But right now, I accept Jesus Christ into my heart to save me and take me to heaven when I die. I'm trusting you, Jesus, and only You, and nothing I can do. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus' name, Amen."
