Going to Heaven
Are you absolutely sure?
There are many things today that you cannot really be sure of:
• Will your health continue?
• Will you remain employed this year?
• Will you ever be seriously injured in an automobile accident?
Although you can never truly know the answers to these questions, there is one answer, to one question, that you can be absolutely sure of.
Here is the question.
If you were to die right now, are you 100% sure that you would go to heaven?
Can anyone really know?
Look what God says about going to heaven:
“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.” (1 John 5:13)
You can know and God wants you to know! Look what God says about getting to heaven:
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10)
Heaven is for the righteous. Unfortunately, no one qualifies as righteous. Righteousness is not determined by good qualities you have or by good works you have done or may do. Righteousness is determined by God, and is defined as being without sin or without any stain of sin.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
God, in all His glory, is in heaven. Everyone has sinned and sin causes us to fall short of getting to heaven. Heaven is a place of righteousness because no sin is there. Our sin will keep us out of heaven and condemn us to hell. Therefore, sin is the problem that must be dealt with.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
The wages of sin (physical death) is deserved. But the gift of God (eternal life) is not deserved. You are going to die someday. The question is what will happen after you die. The Lord Jesus Christ wants to give you the free gift of eternal life right now. To die without the gift of eternal life is to be condemned to hell for everlasting punishment. God does not want anyone to go to hell. He has provided a way to be saved, and this way is available to everyone.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
The word “commendeth” means “proved”. God did not just say He loved us, He proved it. Jesus is the sinless Son of God. Jesus paid our eternal penalty for sin when He died for us on the cross. This is how the gift of eternal life was purchased. Yes, it is free to us, but it cost Jesus His life. He loved us so much that He died for us.
“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.” (Romans 10:9)
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
What should you do?
Admit you are a sinner and need a Savior.
Realize that Jesus already paid your eternal penalty for sin.
Turn from your sin and turn to the Savior.
Ask Jesus to save you and give you the free gift of Eternal Life.
If you believe it and ask Jesus Christ for it, He will give it.
Would you pray, right now, and ask Jesus to be your Savior?
A simple prayer of faith.
Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I know that my sin will keep me out of heaven. I believe that you died on the cross for me and paid my eternal penalty for sin. Right now, I am turning from my sin and asking you to be my Savior. I gladly accept your free gift to me of eternal life. I am trusting in You, Jesus, and in You alone, to take me to heaven when I die. Thank you for my free gift of eternal life. Please help me to live for You. Amen.
