Are you on your way to heaven?
The Bible says we can confidently know that heaven will be our home. Here's how:
- "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Rom. 3:23)
This means we have all sinned and are not as perfect as God. God is perfect and lives in a perfect place.
Since we are not perfect as He is, we cannot enter heaven.
- "For the wages of sin is death" (Rom. 6:23a)
"...the lake of fire. This is the second death" (Rev. 20:14)
Death is separation. Sin causes physical death, where we are separated from our loved ones in this world.
Sin also causes spiritual death, which is where we will be judged by God and sent away from His presence forever in the lake of fire.
- "God commendeth (showed) His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Rom. 5:8)
Here's the beginning of the Good News! God doesn't want anyone to go to the lake of fire.
So He provided a way of escape for us by sending Jesus to die on the cross.
- "...the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Rom. 6:23b)
God has a gift for you. It is eternal life! This life is possible because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
- "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Rom. 10:13)
The gift of God is waiting for you! Just simply call on the Lord in prayer, believing these simple truths of the Bible.
Here is a sample prayer you might offer.
"Dear Jesus, I know that I'm a sinner. I believe you died for my sin that I might go to heaven.
I ask you to save me from my sin and give me the gift of eternal life. Thank you for saving me! In Jesus' name, Amen."
