The Bible says that God loves you and wants you to go to heaven.
Have you wondered how you get to heaven?
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
The problem is that the same Bible says, that all of us have sinned and come short
of the glory of God. Sin separates us from a holy God and keeps us out of heaven.
So how do you get in? Some think that sincerity is the way. Some think being
a good person is the way. Some think morality is the way. Some think being
religious is the way. The problem is that no amount of good works or effort
can get us into heaven because the wages of sin is death.
But there is a way. Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sin.
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us. Jesus is God the Son who died, rose from the grave, conquered
death and is now in heaven. Jesus said:
I am the way, and the truth, and the life;
no one comes to the Father but through Me
So what do you do? Transfer trust from anyone and anything else and place it
in Jesus. Be willing to repent of your sin and invite Jesus into your life as Lord
and Savior. The Bible says, If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord,
and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
You can trust Jesus now. Invite Him into your life through prayer. If you want
to go to heaven, ask Him to forgive you. Here is a suggested prayer -
Dear Jesus, I believe that I am a sinner. I believe that you died
on the cross for my sins and that you rose from the grave.
I ask you to forgive me for my sins and be my Savior and Lord. Amen
