Suppose you are standing before the Lord and He asked, “Why should I let you into My heaven?”
What would you say?
–The thing is, none of us are good enough to earn eternal life.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
–Sin separates you and me from a holy God. But He wants a relationship with you and sent His Son to die on your behalf.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
–When Jesus died on the cross, he took all the punishment you deserve for your sin on himself.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
–Because of His sacrifice, eternal life is a free gift.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.” John 1:12
–Contrary to the world’s philosophy that there are many ways to heaven, Jesus said He is the ONLY way.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.'” John 14:6
–You can receive this free gift. Admit to God you are a sinner and need His forgiveness. Then trust Him. Tell Him you know He is the only way to eternal life and thank Him for His sacrifice. He rose from the grave and ascended to heaven to prepare a home for YOU!
“That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” Romans 10:9-10
–That’s it. It’s that easy. Now follow Him!
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8
