Everyone wants to go to Heaven, and God wants you to be there too. Sadly however, many have been mislead on how to get to Heaven and you my friend my be one of them. But I want to help you. Please read on and I will try to make things easy for you.
First you must realize that we are all sinners.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
Yes, you as myself have fallen short of the glory of God because of our sins. What is the glory of God? Heaven. Now friend you might be thinking your better than the evildoers who murder, rape, lie, and so on. When compared to Jesus “there is none that doeth good.” (Romans 3:10-22). What does that mean? It means that Jesus lead a perfect life and nothing you or I have done in our life can merit everlasting life (glory of God). You may be thinking “well I do good things, I go to church every Sunday, I give regularly every Sunday to the church, and I donate to the poor. Friend those are good things however, they are not the key to the glory of God. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8 Your heartfelt response ought to be, “God be merciful to me a sinner.” (Luke 18:13) Friend God love’s you and he wants you to receive his Gift.
Second, you must realize that there’s a penalty for sin.
“For the wages (payment) of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23a)
There are two kinds of death, physical and spiritual. One we inherited from Adam and the other we earn by our continuance in sin. If we die in this condition with out Gods Gift (Jesus Christ as our Saviour) we must die a second death, eternally separated from God in a Christless hell “fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)
Thirdly, realize that Jesus Christ has paid the debt.
“..how that Christ died for our sins” (I Cor. 15:3)
You must realize that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, 100% Man and 100% God, who lead a perfect life and was born of a virgin. When Jesus died on the cross, He paid for our sins with his precious blood and bridged the gap that separated us from God. You must realize that Jesus Christ was not a sinner like you and I, and that God took all of our sins and placed them on Jesus at the cross. While Jesus was bearing all of our sins in His own body, God punished Him in our place to pay in full the sin debt that we owe.
Henceforth, Jesus took your penalty, your place at the cross, and he did it because he loves you.
He died at the cross, was buried and rose three days after and conquered sin. (John 19-21)
Fourthly, realize that you must receive by faith Jesus as your personal Saviour and accept His free gift of eternal life (glory of God).
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God…” (John 1:12a)
“…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23b)
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
Friend whosoever means you and me. If you by simple faith will trust in Jesus Christ and His death at the cross, burial and resurrection for your salvation, you can be 100% sure that you are going to Heaven.
Friend, why not trust Jesus as I have and earn your gift from God. Just pray this simple prayer from your heart.
“Lord Jesus, I believe You died, were buried, and rose again to pay for my sins. Be merciful to me a sinner and save me from hell. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving me and making me Your child. Amen.
