How to Get to Heaven
In a day when there are so many different ideas of how a person can get to Heaven, how do you know which one will really get you there? The answer is not in man’s philosophies, but in the God who created the heavens and the earth. God plainly tells us in His word how to get to Heaven and that there is only one way to get there.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
1. KNOW THAT YOU HAVE SINNED
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
2.KNOW THAT THERE IS A PRICE OWED BECAUSE OF SIN
“For the wages of sin is death;”
This is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire,
3.KNOW THAT JESUS PAID THAT PRICE FOR YOU
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Remember that the price for sin is death, eternal separation from God. When Jesus died on the cross, He took the world’s sins on Himself and paid the price for sin. We know according to God’s word that He did not stay dead but rose from the grave on the third day.
4.KNOW THAT GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE
“But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
5.KNOW THAT IF YOU WILL RECIEVE JESUS IN YOUR HEART AND ACCEPT WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU, HE WILL SAVE YOU!
“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.”
God promises us in His word that He will save anyone from sin and Hell if they will call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and ask Him to save them.
Would you call on the Lord Jesus right here, right now to save you from your sins and from Hell?
HOW TO CALL ON THE LORD
You can do so by simply praying the best way you know how. You may say something like this:
I confess that I am a sinner. I believe in my heart that you died and shed your blood in my place to pay for my sins, and that you rose again from the grave. I accept what you have done for me and ask you to forgive me of my sins. Please give me your gift of eternal life in Heaven. Help me to live a life pleasing to you. Thank you for saving me. In Your name I pray. Amen.
