How Can I Get to Heaven?

Get to Heaven

Do you know for sure, that if you died today, you would go to heaven?  If you ask most people this question, they simply aren't sure. Here's how you can be 100% sure that you are going to Heaven...

1. Realize we are all sinners.

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

Yes, you too have fallen short of Heaven because of your sin. You may be better than many others, but compared to Jesus "there is none that doeth good." (Romans 3:10-12) Your heartfelt response ought to be, "God be merciful to me a sinner." (Luke 18:13)

"For the wages (payment) of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23a)

There are two kinds of death, physical and spiritual. One we inherited from Adam and the other we earn by our continuance in sin. If we die in this condition without Jesus Christ as our Saviour, we must die a second death, eternally separated from God in a Christless hellfire and brinstone; which is the second death." (Revelation 21:8)

"... how that Christ died for our sins." (1 Cor. 15:3)

When Jesus died on the cross, He paid for all our sins with His precious blood and bridged the gap that separated us from God. You must realize that Jesus Christ was not a sinner and that God took all our sins and placed them on Jesus at the cross. While Jesus was bearing all our sins in His own body, God punished Him in our place to pay in full the sin debt that we owe.

JesusWelcome4. Realize you must receive by faith Jesus as your Saviour and accept His free gift of eternal life.

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God..." (John 1:12a)  "... but the gift of god is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. " (Romans 6:23b) "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)

Whosoever means you. If you by simple faith will trust in Jesus Christ and His death, burial, and resurrection for your salvation, you can be 100% sure that you are going to Heaven.
