How Do We Go To Heaven?
This is What the Bible Says...
1. The Bible says, "All have sinned and are not good enough for God's glory." (Romans 3:23)
We must understand that we've done, said and thought wrong things. This separates us from God. The "all" in this verse refers to everyone.
2. The Bible says, "When people sin, they earn what sin pays---death. But God gives us a free gift---life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
We must realize that, while we deserve to die for the wrong we've done, God wants to give us the gift of eternal life. Eternal life is a personal relationship with Jesus that starts now on earth and lasts forever in Heaven. We can't do anything to earn or deserve eternal life. It's a free gift from our loving, merciful God.
3. The Bible says, "God shows His great love for us in this way: Christ died for us while we were still sinners." (Romans 5:8)
We must know that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sin. He died for each of us---personally---to save us from the consequence of sin, which is death.
4. The Bible says, "If you use your mouth to say, 'Jesus is Lord,' and if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. We believe with our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we use our mouths to say that we believe, and so we are saved. ...'any one who calls on the Lord will be saved.'" (Romans 10:9-10, 13)
We must recognize that it's God who changes our hearts so that we're able to believe the Truth and agree with God. Then we must ask Jesus Christ to forgive our sin and come into our lives to be our Savior and Lord--this is, Boss of our lives.
Would you like to go to Heaven and have eternal life with God? Would you like to ask Jesus to forgive your sin and invite Him to be your Savior and Lord? Pray...
I've done and said and thought things that are wrong. I know I'm a sinner. I believe that, as God's Son, you died on the Cross for my sin.
I believe that God raised you from the dead. I believe that you are Lord, Jesus. Please come into my life to be my Savior and Lord.
Thank you for saving me. I pray in your Name, Jesus. Amen.
