What if... you were to die today, are you 100% certain that you would go to Heaven?
The most important thing in life is to know where we are going to spend eternity. Life is short and we are not guaranteed a tomorrow. The good news is that we can CHOOSE where we spend eternity; Heaven or Hell. The Bible tells us how we can know with 100% certainty that we are going to Heaven.
First, we must realize that we are all sinners.
We have ALL sinned against God.
"As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10)
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
Second, we must realize that as a sinner we owe a penalty .
The penalty of sin is death. We are not only going to die physically but we are also going to die spiritually.
"For the wages (payment) of sine is death..." (Romans 6:23a)
Third, we must realize that Jesus Christ has already paid our sin debt .
Jesus died on the cross, was buried and rose again, victorious over sin, Hell and death. We do not have to go to Hell because Jesus paid for all of our sins and bridged the gap that separated us from God. Jesus took upon Himself the sin of the entire human race..from Adam to the last living man. Jesus became our substitute; He paid my sin debt and your sin debt.
"But God commendeth (proved) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
Fourth, we must receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and what He did for you on the cross at Calvary .
The word "believe" means to trust - to depend on. To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ means that you accept the following facts: that you are a sinner; that as a sinner you owe a sin debt; that Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood to pay the debt you owe; and that after 3 days and 3 nights, He arose. To believe means going beyond intellectual understanding; it means to place YOUR faith TOTALLY in Him forever to save you from hell, forgive your sins, and give you the gift of eternal life.
"...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23b)
"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 hear man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
If you believe these facts and sincerely want to receive Jesus Christ into your heart, pray this prayer to Him:
Dear Lord Jesus,
I know that I am a sinner deserving God's penalty for sin, which is hell. I believe that Jesus paid the penalty of sin for me on the cross; and right now, the best I know how, I turn from my sins and come to you, Lord Jesus. Come into my heart, and save me from my sin. In Jesus' name. Amen.
