Here is the most important question you will ever be asked: “If you were to die right now, are you 100% sure you would go to Heaven?” If you can’t answer “yes” to that question, there is good news! The Word of God makes it very clear how you can know without a doubt that Heaven is your Home:
1. REALIZE YOUR CONDITION
The Bible plainly says that we are all sinners. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We may consider ourselves to be “pretty good” compared to someone else, but by God’s standard, we’ve missed the mark. Romans 3:10 says, “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one”. We have all sinned and need a Saviour.
2. RECOGNIZE THERE IS A PENALTY FOR SIN
Just as justice demands that crime must be paid for, so the justice of God demands that our sin must be paid for. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death”. Revelation 20:14,15 describes what’s called the “second death.” In Revelation 20:15, the Word of God says, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”. Just as Heaven is real, Hell is also a very real place where those who die in their sins must go.
3. REALIZE JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR YOUR SIN
We find this good news in Romans 5:8, ”But God commendeth (demonstrated) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, God’s only begotten son, which means that He had the sinless blood of Almighty God running through His veins. When Jesus died on the cross, He shed that sinless blood as the payment for your sins. The innocent One died for the guilty ones.
4. RECEIVE JESUS AND HIS FREE GIFT OF SALVATION
Romans 6:23b says, “…the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
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.” A gift cannot be paid for nor purchased, because someone else already bought it! Jesus Christ purchased eternal life in Heaven for us when He died on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Salvation can’t be bought by getting baptized, joining a church, or being a good person. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
The Bible says in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name”.
The ONLY way to know you are saved and on your way to Heaven is to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and by faith to trust Him and the blood He shed for you on the cross, believing in Him alone to take you to Heaven.
Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Won’t you call on the Lord now and receive Him as your Saviour? Simply reciting words will not save anyone, but prayer is an expression of our faith in Jesus Christ. If you’d like to receive Jesus as your Saviour, would you pray something like this from your heart?
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I’m a sinner and deserve to pay the penalty for my own sins by going to Hell. But I believe you died on the cross to pay for my sins and rose again. I believe on you right now and trust you alone as my Saviour. Please come into my heart, wash away my sins, and take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you, Jesus, for dying for me and giving me the gift of salvation.”
If you sincerely received Christ as your Saviour, He promised you would be saved and have eternal life in Heaven!
I John 5:13 says, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life”.
