How to go to Heaven
-1 John 5:13 – 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.
There are three things you must know and understand and only one thing you must do in order to be saved.
1. Realize that you are a sinner
-Romans 3:23 – For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
We are ALL sinners, and because of that, we fall short of the perfection required for heaven.
2. Realize there is a penalty for your sin
-Romans 6:23a – For the wages of sin is death….
A “wage” is an earning. If you have a job, you earn a wage. So, the Bible is telling us, that because of our sin, we owe the penalty of death. Certainly physical death, but more specifically, eternal death or as the Bible words it, “The Second Death”.
-Revelation 21:8 – 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 of fire which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
3. Realize the payment for your sin has already been paid
Romans 5:8 – But God commendeth His love toward US, in that, while WE were yet sinners, Christ died for US.
When Jesus died on the cross, He died for your sins. He has already paid the penalty required for your sin. He was buried, and three days later he arose with eternal victory over death, hell and the grave.
You do not have to pay for your sins……………IF, you will do the ONE thing required of you……
4. Receive Christ as YOUR Saviour
-John 1:12 – But as many as RECEIVED Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.
-Romans 10:13 – For whosoever shall CALL upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
You can be saved right now, by genuinely turning to Christ and asking Him to forgive you and to save your soul.
If you would like to be saved, pray something similar to this:
“Dear God, I know that I am a sinner, and that according to your Word, I deserve hell for my sin. But I believe that Jesus died for me and rose again the third day. Right now, I am asking Jesus to forgive me of my sin and to save my soul. I am trusting completely in Christ for my salvation.”
If you just prayed that prayer and genuinely meant it from your heart, God says that you now have ETERNAL LIFE. You are saved!
Please let us know if you have trusted Jesus as your Saviour.
