Eternal Life

How You Can Go to Heaven

Eternal life is a free gift to all who will receive it, and God�s desire is that everyone be saved. 2 Peter 3:9 makes this abundantly clear, "God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." To "perish" is to die without God�s forgiveness and then to spend eternity in the lake of fire. Revelation 20:13-15 paints a dreadful picture of the results of the final judgment, "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." These verses describe for us the means whereby God will finally put away the results of sin.

There is Good News

God has made a way for us to be saved from the lake of fire by sending us His Son. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life," John 3:16.

There Is Bad News

We need to be saved because we are sinners. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God," Romans 3:23.

God demands a payment for our sin. "For the wages of sin is death," Romans 6:23a.

There Is More Good News

Jesus made the payment for us by His death on the cross. "But God commendeth (displayed) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us," Romans 5:8.

Our part is to confess our sins and receive Christ as our Savior believing that when Jesus died on the cross, He was dying in our place and paying the penalty for our sins. "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.

If in your heart you feel sorry for your sins and believe that Jesus died for you, was buried, and rose again just as the Bible says, then all that is necessary for you to do to be born again is to pray and receive Christ as your Savior. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved," Romans 10:13.

Here Is a Simple Way to Pray

"Dear Lord, I know I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins. I believe that Jesus died for me, was buried, and rose again. Right now, dear Jesus, I ask You to forgive my sins, and come into my heart, and save me. I trust You, Jesus, with all my heart. Amen."
