HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN
- Realize God’s Purpose
Realize God’s purpose for your life is to know Him or have a relationship with Him. Jesus said, in John 17:3, “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
- Recognize Your Problem
The problem is we are all sinners by nature and by choice (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-3).
We have all broken God’s laws, and our sin separates us from a Holy God, which will result in hell when we die (Romans 6:23).
- Remember God’s Provision
God sent His son, Jesus, to take the penalty for your sin by dying on the cross and rising from the dead (Romans 5:8; 1 Cor. 15: 1-3).
He punished Christ so He would not have to punish you eternally (II Cor 5:21).
- Receive God’s Gift
If you want to receive the gift of eternal life that you cannot earn by your good works, all you need to do is:
- Admit your sin and turn from it (Acts 26:20).
- Ask God to save you by trusting in Christ’s death and resurrection as the payment for your sin (Romans 10:9-10; 13).
