There are 4 things you must know:
1. We All Have Sinned
"For all Have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
We are all sinners by nature and by choice. God sees all of our actions, thoughts, motives, and the places we go. No one is perfect. We have all done things that we should have not done.
2. We Have A Penalty For Our Sin
"For the wages of sin is death." (Romans 6:23a)
The word wages means what we earned. This means that since we have all sinned, we all earn death by our actions. There are 2 deaths mentioned in the Bible.
"And death and hell were cast into the lake fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." (Revelation 20:14-15)
The 2 deaths mentioned are Physical death spiritual death. Since we have all sinned, we deserve both. Sin cannot be allowed to enter Heaven. And our sin is what is keeping us from going to Heaven.
Heaven is the perfect place and since we are not perfect people, we do not deserve to go to Heaven.
3. We Can Have The Saviour
"...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23b)
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
God loves us so much that He sent his only begotten Son to die on the cross in our place so we can go to Heaven.
The only way that we can go to Heaven is if our sins are paid for us. The only way to pay for our sins is by a death. This is why Jesus died for us and this is why Jesus is the only way to Heaven.
A church has never died for us, so a church cannot save us. A religion has never died for us, so a religion cannot save us. And, we have not died for our own sins so our good life cannot save us. We simply must have a Saviour and Jesus wants to be that Saviour.
4. We Can Be Saved Now
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
Whosoever means anybody, call means to ask, and the name of the Lord is Jesus. If anybody would ask Jesus to save them, they shall be saved. The Bible tells us how one can do this.
"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)
You must believe with your heart that Jesus is the only way to Heaven and you must ask Jesus to save you from Hell and to take you to Heaven.
If Jesus was willing to save you, would you be willing to ask Him to save you? Ask him now!
Make This Your Own Prayer
Dear Jesus, I know that I have sinned and that I need you to go to Heaven. Please save my soul and take me to Heaven one day. I am only trusting in you to get to Heaven. Thank you for saving me. Amen.
