If You Died Today...Do You Know That You Would Go To Heaven?
Can you answer "Yes" to this question? If not, please consider the following facts...
FACT 1: Every person will die one day
"And it is appointed unto man once to die..." Hebrews 9:27
No one escapes death. It is one thing that all people have in common.
FACT 2: Death is a result of sin
"For the wages of sin is death..." Romans 6:23(a)
Because of the awfulness of sin, death is something we must all face. No one escapes this curse...
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23
FACT 3: God loves you and has provided a way of escape
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ DIED FOR US." Romans 5:8
To pay the penalty of sin, all of our sins were placed on Christ, and then He died in our place on the cross.
FACT 4: God wants to give you eternal life
"The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 6:23(b)
Eternal life means that you are part of the family of God (John 1:12), that Christ lives in your (I John 4:15) and that one day you will be in heaven with Him (II Corinthnians 5:8)!
FACT 5: There is only one way to receive this gift
"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
There are three easy steps to receiving this gift...
- Accept that you are a sinner, and confess this to Christ;
- Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior;
- Confess that Jesus is your Savior.
If you are willing to receive Christ as your Savior, please pray the following...
Dear Lord Jesus,
I believe that you are the Son of God and that you died for me. I admit that I am a sinner. I want you to be my Savior and forgive my sin. I want to live for you and serve you for the rest of my life. In Jesus name, AMEN.
Once you have asked Christ to save you, you can have complete assurance that He is your Savior, because the BIble says...
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
