The Bible tells us we are all sinners “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” ~ Romans 3:23
So there must be away for us to get to Heaven. And there is!
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, 9 not of works, so that no one should boast.” ~ Ephesians 2:8-9
So it is not what you do, but what God does that will get us to Heaven. It is thru His grace only that we are saved.
Would you like to know for sure you will go to Heaven when you die?
When asked by a Pharisee named Nicodemus how to get to Heaven Jesus answered him, “Truly, I say to you, unless a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” ~ John 3:3
You must be born again to receive salvation and to be born again you need a relationship with Jesus Christ. This is the only “requirement.” Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. There are no rituals, no special incantations, no special “works” you have to do. No special person to “preside” over you. Baptism will not save you either. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can save you… One name is above all names can get you to Heaven and that name is Jesus Christ.
Here’s how to do that:
First, realize God loves you: as it says in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
Next, You must acknowledge you are a sinner and understand that Jesus died for your sins as it says in Romans 5:8: “ But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Then, Believe Jesus will forgive you:
Romans 10:13: “… Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
That means if you call on the name of the Lord he will forgive your sins and you will be saved!
Once you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you have a place reserved for you in Heaven. You may ask “what if I sin again?” “Can I lose my salvation?” The very simple answer to that is all of your sins have been forgiven; past, present and future. So, no you can’t lose it.
Jesus Himself gave us the guarantee the we cannot lose our salvation:
John 10:28-30: “ I give them eternal life. They shall never perish, nor shall anyone snatch them from My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them from My Father’s hand. 30 My Father and I are one.”
That means your soul is put in the hands of Jesus, and the Heavenly Father wraps His hands round Jesus’ hands and the Holy Spirit wraps around both hands, so there is no way your soul can be taken out the hands of our Savior.
That is the divine guarantee you cannot lose our salvation and that guarantee was written in the Blood of Jesus Christ…
Repent of your sins now and accept the gift God has given all of us. The gift of eternal life and a guaranteed place in Heaven that can never be taken away….
