If you died today, are you 100% sure you would go to Heaven?
The good news is the Bible teaches us we can know for sure!
4 Simple truths:
1. We are all sinners. Romans 3:23 tells us, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
2. As sinners, we are lost in need of a Saviour. Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death." Wages is payment for something done. The word death means to be separated from God. If you could not go to Heaven where God is, Hell is the only other option. The truth is, Hell is the wages for our sins.
3. Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins. Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus loves you so much that He came to earth 2,000 years ago, died on the cross, and rose again 3 days later. He did this to pay the debt that we owe for our sins.
4. We can simply trust Jesus to be our Saviour. Romans 10:13 says "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." That is a promise from God to you. If you can admit that you are a sinner, admit that you are lost and headed for eternity in Hell, believe that Jesus died, was buried and rose again, and you are willing to turn from your sin and place your faith in Jesus, He will save you. He wants you to call on Him.
The best way you know how, and with simple faith, call out to God. You may use a prayer like this. The prayer does not save you, but the faith that trusts Jesus to save you will.
"Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I know I deserve to go to Hell. I believe you love me, and you died on the cross to pay for my sins. Would you come into my heart, forgive me of all my sins, and would you save my soul from Hell. I trust Jesus, and only Jesus, to be my Saviour. Amen."
