Death is the destiny of everyone, no one can escape it. No matter what a person attains in life, they cannot conquer death. The idea is frightening and many push it out of their mind until it’s too late. The question?
“If you were to die this very moment, do you have the assurance that you would be in heaven?”
The BIBLE SAYS there are four things a person must know
to go to heaven:
1.) All have sinned and come short of the glory of God - Romans, 3:23.
This means no one is perfect and by our own works, we fall short of God’s Glory.
2.) For the wages of sin is death - Romans, 6:23. Our
sin has earned a wage and that wage is
death or separation from God in Hell.
3.) But God commendeth His love towards us in that while
we were yet sinners, Christ died for us - Romans, 5:8.
Even in our sin God loved us and sent Jesus 2000 years ago to die on the cross for us.
4.) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved - Romans, 10:13. So taking Him as your Savior is the next step. How? Simple. Talk to Him.
How to receive Christ:
1.) Admit your need (I am a sinner).
2.) Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
3.) Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
4.) Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit. (Receive Him as Lord and Savior)
You may receive Christ this moment by praying this prayer right now.
“Dear Jesus, Forgive me of all my sins and save my soul. I repent of all my sins and ask you to come into my heart. I believe you are my Lord and that you were raised from the dead. I ask that you lead me, protect me, and guide me all the days of my life. Thank you for hearing my prayer and saving my soul. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.”
If you have invited Jesus Christ into your life, the Bible says you now have eternal life. You should now live for Him and allow Him to change your life.
“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:12
This is just the beginning of a wonderful new life in Christ. To deepen this relationship you should:
1.) Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better.
2.) Talk to God in prayer every day.
3.) Be water baptized.
4.) Tell others about Christ.
5.) Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached.
6.) As Christ’s representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life by your love and concern for others.
God bless you,
