The Bible Way to Heaven
- KNOW THAT GOD LOVES YOU
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God loves you so much that He was willing to sacrifice His own Son to provide you a way or salvation.
- RECOGNIZE YOUR CONDITION
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short.
- REALIZE THE PENALTY FOR SIN
For the wages of sin is deathÖ
Just as there are rewards for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
- BELIEVE THAT CHRIST DIED FOR YOU
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Christís great love for us was shown when He died on the cross to pay our sin debt.
- TRUST CHRIST ALONE AS YOUR SAVIOR
ÖBut the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
You can call upon the name of the Lord by praying something like thisÖ (Realize itís not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ).
Dear Lord Jesus, I know Iím a sinner and I need to be saved. I believe that you shed your blood on the cross, died, and rose again as payment for my sins. Jesus, please forgive me for my sins and come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. Iím trusting you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me, Jesus. Amen.
