Many people feel they will go into eternity and hope for the best. They hope that their good works will be greater than their sins and God will overlook their sin.
Our good works will never get us into heaven, Titus 3:5 says, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
The ways to heaven begins with us dealing with our sin.
You must first recognize your condition.
Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short.
Realize the Penalty for sin.
Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death…”
Just as there are wages for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called hell.
Believe Christ died for you.
Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Christ’s great love for us was shown when He died on the cross to pay our debt.
Trust Christ alone as your Saviour.
Romans 6:23, “…But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
Let us help you word a prayer.Realize it is not a prayer that saves, but it is your faith in JesusChrist. “Dear Jesus, I know I’m a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I’m trusting you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me Jesus. Amen!”
