Going to Heaven?
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Four Things You Need to Know...
1) You are a sinner.
This just means that we aren't perfect. Every human is a sinner. We all do things wrong and make mistakes. (i.e. lying, unkindness, laziness, naughty thoughts...)
This sin is what keeps us from Heaven. Our sin is what makes us deserve to go to Hell instead.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
2) There is a penalty for sin
The Bible says because we have broken God's law we must pay the penalty for sin.
God's justice demands that sin be paid for. Without salvation we are on our way to hell.
"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
3) Jesus died for you.
Jesus is God's son, mentioned in the verse above (John 3:16). There is nothing we can DO to take away our sin since we aren't perfect. Everything we do will be tainted by our sin.
Jesus loved everyone so much that He was willing to die on a cross about 2,000 years ago to be the ultimate payment for our sin. He took our punishment upon himself.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him."
4) You must accept the FREE gift of salvation
Jesus rose from the grave three days after He was buried, conquering death and Hell. Nobody has to go to Hell!
We can't work our way to Heaven. Jesus already did what was needed by dying on the cross and rising again from the dead.
"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."
Ephesians 2:8 & 9
Are you willing to accept God's gift of salvation?
Now that you know that you are a sinner, that Jesus died and rose again for you, and is offering the gift of eternal life, all you have to do is believe that these things are true and accept the gift by telling Jesus that you are putting your faith in Him to take you to Heaven when you die. By doing this you accept His free gift!
"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.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:9 & 10
"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, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
1 John 5:13

These specific words won't save you. But, if you believe what you are saying 100% then you will go to Heaven when you die. God promises this: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
