The Bible 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… (1 John 5:13). God wants you to know that you can go to heaven, but you must do it God’s way.
We are all sinners. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Because of our sin we are under the penalty of sin. For the wages of sin is death … (Romans 6:23). This penalty means eternal separation from God in an eternal hell.
However, God does not want you to go to hell so He sent His Son to die and pay the penalty for your sins. But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
God’s love is so great that He made a way for your sins to be forgiven. He offers His forgiveness and salvation freely. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
God offers heaven as a gift, purchased with His blood on the cross. But like all gifts, it is not yours until we receive it. Here is how you can receive Christ. 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). You must believe in your heart and call on the Lord to save you.
If you accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior please let us know. We would like to send you a free Bible study to help you get started right in the Christian life.
