Are You Sure About Heaven?

Think carefully on this soul searching question: “If you were to die right now, do you know for sure you would go to Heaven?”

If your answer is anything other than, “YES, I am absolutely certain that my sins are forgiven and that Heaven will be my home”, then please continue reading. To know for sure that heaven will be your home when you die, you have to understand the following…

First, you have sinned against God…

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God;”  Romans 3:23

Then, God tells us why our sin is a problem…

“For the wages of sin is death;”  Romans 6:23

The wonderful news of the Bible is that Jesus has already paid that debt for you…

“But God commendeth (demonstrated) His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

Now, this is great news, but surely there must be something to pay for this favor, right? Wrong. God 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.”  Ephesians 2:8-9

God wants you to believe His Word and take Christ as your personal Savior…

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  Romans 10:13

You can have your sins forgiven and begin a new, abundant life right now…

The words in this prayer do not save you, but rather, you are saved by your sincere faith in Jesus Christ. But these, or similar words, can help you to express that saving faith. Pray the following…

“Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner; I place my faith in You now to forgive me of my sins and to help me live for You. Become the King of my heart and life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
