Directions to Heaven
Sep 25, 2017 --
Here's how it it's explained in the Bible:
Because we've all done things (steal, lie, lust, sin.) that are displeasing to God we are not worthy of heaven. Nothing sinful will be in a "Perfect Heaven".
Romans 3:10 "There is none righteous, no not one. (No one is "good enough", me, you or ANYONE!)
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Again, me and you.)
Understand the penalty for sin is death & hell.
Romans 6:23a: "For the wages (Cost) of sin is death"
Revelation 20:14: And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Realize that Jesus paid the penalty for sins.
Romans 5:8: "But God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 6:23b: But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Accept Christ as your Savior
Romans 10:13: For whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10:9: If thou shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus Christ, and believe in your heart that God has raised him for the grave, you will be saved.
John 1:12: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become the sons and daughters of God, even to them that believe on his name.
So, now you know, and right now you need to make a decision, to accept or reject.
I pray that you'll "Accept" and receive Life everlasting. If you reject there's no guarantee you'll have this chance again. None of us are promised a tomorrow.
This my friend is the most important decision you'll ever make. Choose LIFE.
If you've chosen LIFE, just pray a simple prayer, using simple words, something like this: Jesus, I believe that you loved me enough to pay for all my sins by dying on a cross, shedding your own blood to cover my sins. I'm sorry you had to do that for me. I now turn from my old ways and follow you all the rest of my life. Jesus please save me, come into my heart and be the Lord of my life for ever. Amen.
Now, start reading your Bible and praying every day. Find a church that teaches only from the Bible and attend regularly to learn what it has to say. You'll only need this one book to grow closer to God and learn what His plan is for your life.
Congratulations, If you've just prayed and asked Jesus into your heart, you have just become a child of God! And your future is now secure, forever.
If you haven't made any decision, a decision has been made. Not asking Jesus to save you is a "NO" decision. Your sins are NOT forgiven, Please reconsider, tomorrow may be too late.
