Life has a question for you........
"What if? "
What if you knew that today was your last day to live? What if you died today?
Are you 100% sure that Heaven would be your FINAL DESTINATION?
Gods Word says we can know we're going to Heaven, but there are four things we must first believe.
1. WE ARE ALL SINNERS
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." - Romans 3:23
Most people consider themselves to be a good person, but who is the standard of goodness? In other words, to whom are you comparing yourself to see if you are good? Gods Word says the standard is Jesus Christ and compared to Him, the best person in the world falls short.
2. THERE IS A PENALTY FOR OUR SIN
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23
We get our wages on payday for the work we have done. God says that sin also has a payday. Some think they can get their sins paid for by being good, getting baptized or joining a church. According to Gods Word, the payment for our sin is death! An eternal death separated from God in a place called Hell.
That's not very good news is it? So, here's the good news...... the reason we cannot earn eternal life through good works or any other way is because it is a free gift! Notice again what God said, "but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Eternal life is a gift, and a gift is always free. So, eternal life is a free gift because.......
3. CHRIST PAID OUR PENALTY
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8
God says that when Jesus died on the cross, He was dying to pay the penalty of our sin.
4. PRAY AND RECEIVE CHRIST
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13
If you believe that you are a sinner and that Christ died to pay your sin debt, then by faith call upon the Lord and ask Him to be your Saviour.
If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, you can pray, "Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner, I believe You died on the cross to pay for my sin. I trust You alone, to forgive my sin and take me to heaven when I die."
