Are you sure that you are going to Heaven?
This is a simple question, but it is the most important question to be asked. There is a Bible answer to this question. When it comes right down to it, you want the answer that God is expecting. The Bible tells us exactly what God has to say on what it takes to get into heaven.
1 John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Do you have the Son? Many will claim to know of Jesus, know who He is, but do you have Jesus? Sin is what keeps people from having Jesus.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Because of sin we fall short of having God. Because of sin, we do not have the Son. The Bible also tells us that sin has a wage or a cost. That cost is death!
Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
The reality is that sin brings death and death is forever. This is a serious consequence, but sin is a serious offence to God. While there is a terrible cost for sin, Romans 6:23 declares that there can be life through Jesus Christ. This life is the result of a tremendous gift that Jesus has given to everyone.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Jesus paid for the cost of sin to forgive you and me of every sin. Jesus loves you so much that He paid the price for sin with His own life. Not only did Jesus die for you, but He rose from the dead and is alive! Just like what His hope is for you, to have life in Him. The statement was made that those that have Jesus, have life. So what must a person do to have life?
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I (Jesus) stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Romans 10:9 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.
First you must want Jesus to give you life. You must be willing to open the door of your heart and allow Jesus to become your life. You must confess that you are a sinner and that Jesus is the Saviour. If you are willing to do these things, then the Bible tells us to receive Christ.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Will you pray and ask Christ to come into your life and give you life, which can only be found in Him. You can pray a prayer like this: “Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I know that you died and rose again to pay for my sin and become my Saviour. I now open the door of my heart and ask you to forgive me of my sin and come into my life and save me. Thank you, Amen.” If you meant this prayer, you now have the Son of God and have life, free from sin!
