You may have been asked this question before...
If you died today,do you know for sure, without a doubt, if you would go to Heaven?
YOU CAN BE!
And God wants you to know...
1. YOU ARE A SINNER AND CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF.
Most people understand that doing evil can keep us out of heaven. But few realize the Bible also teaches that doing good cannot get us in.
We are sinful, and God's standard is utter perfection.
Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
Titus 3:5 says, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us."
Romans 3:10 says, "There is none righteous, no, not one."
Ephesians 2:8-9 says, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
2. JESUS CHRIST HAS ALREADY PROVIDED THE WAY OF SALVATION.
Since God will not let us into Heaven with our sins and since we can't get rid of our sins by ourselves-- we have a problem.
BUT, God solved that problem through Jesus.
John 3:16 says, "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."
1 Peter 3:18 says, "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God."
3. YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SINS, CONFESS THEM AND FORSAKE THEM.
Agree with God that you are a lost sinner unable to save yourself.
1 John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Romans 10:9 says, "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."
Romans 10:13 says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Proverbs 28:13 says, "Whoso confesseth and forsaketh them (his sins) shall obtain mercy."
4.ACCEPTANCE OR REFUSAL DETERMINES YOUR DESTINY!
John 3:36 says, "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."
Will you accept God's free gift to you? Will you receive Jesus as your Savior?
If you will, pray something like this: Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I know that You died for me to pay for my sins. I know that I cannot save myself from an eternity in hell Please forgive me of my sins. Please come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior.
In Jesus name ~
If you have truly trusted and received Jesus as your Savior, you are now God's child
and are forever written in the Book of Life!
