Do you know for sure that you are going to be with God in Heaven?
The few minutes it will take you to read these steps to Life may be the most important time you will ever spend. You can know for sure, today.
"These things I have written unto you... that you may know that you have eternal life..." (1 John 5:13).
The Bible says, " ... the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). And because Heaven is a gift, like any other genuine gift, it is not earned or deserved.
No amount of personal effort, good works, or religious deeds can earn a place in Heaven for you.
"For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9)
Man is a sinner. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Sin is transgressing God's law and includes such things as lying, lust, cheating, deceit, evil thoughts, immoral behavior, and more. And because of this, man cannot save himself. If you wanted to save yourself by good deeds, do you know how good you would have to be? "Be therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect" (Matthew 5:48). With such a high standard, no one can save himself.
However, in spite of our sin... God is merciful, and therefore doesn't want to punish us. This is because "... God is love" (1 John 4:8). And He says, "... I have loved you with an everlasting love" (Jeremiah 31:3). But the same Bible which tells us that God loves us, also tells us that God is just and therefore must punish in. "... the soul that sinneth, it shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4).
We have a problem. God solved this problem for us in the Person of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ came to earth and lived a sinless life, but while on earth, what did he do? He died on the cross to paid the penalty for our sins and rose from the grave to purchase a place for us in Heaven. "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity (sin) of us all" (Isaiah 53:6)
This gift is received by faith. Saving faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life. It means resting upon Christ alone and what He has done rather than in what you or I have done to get us into Heaven. "... Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved..." (Acts 16:31)
Because this is such an important matter let's clarify just what it involves.
It means that you need to:
Transfer your trust from what you have been doing to what Christ has done for you on His cross
Accept Christ as Savior. Open the 'door' to your heart and invite Him in. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock. If any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to Him..." (Revelation 3:20)
Receive Jesus Christ as Lord. Give Him the "driver's seat" and "controls" of your life, not the "back seat"
Repent. Be willing to turn from anything that is not pleasing to Him. He will reveal His will to you as you grown in your relationship with Him.
Consider giving your life to the Lord, today! Don't put off any longer. Now, if you really want to receive the Lord Jesus Christ into you life, you can go to God in prayer where you are. You can receive His gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ right now. Just say, 'Lord Jesus, I receive you as my Lord and Savior of my life and I believe that God had raised Jesus from the dead. Therefore, I am saved (delivered, healed, salvage). Amen (So be it)!'
WELCOME TO GOD'S FAMILY!
If you have truly repented (forsaken, turned away) from your sins, placed your trust in Jesus Christ's sacrificial death, and received the gift of eternal life you are now a child of God! Forever!
"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" (John 1:12).
Today, is your spiritual birthday - a day you will always want to remember! The Bible speaks of those who receive eternal life in these words:
"Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" (John 1:13).
