How You Can KNOW That You Are Going To Heaven
The Bible tells us that we can know that we have an eternal home in Heaven.
I John 5:13 – “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…”
1. Realize That God Loves You
God loves you and has a plan for your life.
“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
2. Realize That You Are A Sinner
Our sins have separated ALL of us (including you) from God.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23
God made man in His own image. He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong. We choose to sin. Our sins keep us from God.
3. Realize That Sin Must Be Paid For
“For the wages of sin is death…” – Romans 6:23
Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.
4. Realize That Christ Died To Pay For Your Sins
All of our sins were laid on Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and He arose from the dead. He is alive forevermore.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8
5. Receive Christ By Faith As Your Personal Savior
You can pray and ask Christ to save you…and He will! It is not the prayer that saves, but believing and meaning it in your heart. A Sinner’s Prayer: “Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today, I would not go to heaven. Forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Savior. Help me live for you from this day forward. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:13
