"Heaven, how do I get there?" is one question we all have to ask ourselves. Our society has been filled with one personís teaching after another.
We have to remember that eternal life depends upon the very Word of God. The way to KNOW how to get to Heaven is by going to the Word of God,
not another manís teaching. To get to Heaven we must know and believe these four things:
WE ARE ALL SINNERS:
Romans 3:10: "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one."
Romans 3:23: "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
Every person who walks the face of the earth has done wrong. Have you ever told a lie?
Have you ever taken something that was not yours? Have you ever had a bad thought?
Everyone has done wrong.
Do you believe this?
THERE IS A PENALTY FOR OUR SIN:
Romans 6:23a: "For the wages of sin is deathÖ"
Revelation 21:8: "But the fearful,and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake
which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
We all know that we must die physically someday. Just pick up any newspaper and read the obituaries
and we see that people die every day and at every age. After physical death, there is also spiritual
death. We decide now while we are living, the place where we will live after physical life Ė Heaven or Hell.
The penalty for our sins is death in Hell. If we get what we deserved it will be death in Hell.
JESUS CHRIST PAID THAT PENALTY FOR US:
Romans 5:8: "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 6:23b: "Ö but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
God loved us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for us.
John 3:16: "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."
Jesus Christ is Godís gift to man. A gift is FREE.
All you have to do to receive a gift when someone is handing it to you,
is to reach out and take it.
TRUST AND TAKE JESUS AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR:
Romans 10:9, 10, 13: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Friend, why donít you bow your head right now.
Pray, and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins to come into your heart and save you.
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner. I deserve Hell. I realize that You died on the cross to save me. Please forgive me. Please come into my heart and save me now.
I am trusting only in You for my eternal salvation. Help me now that I am saved to serve you faithfully. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Ė Amen
Did you do the above? You will go to Heaven; not by what man teaches, but by Godís Word.
Titus 1:2: "In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began."
