Where Will You Be?
Can there be anything more important than knowing where you will spend eternity? Most people, when asked where will you spend eternity?‚ seem to hope‚ or think‚ they will end up in Heaven. But they are not certain.
We want you to be sure.
It says in the Bible that the only way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ.
He who has the Son has life; and he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.-1 John 5:12-13
The Ultimate Gift
It’s commonly thought that the way to Heaven is through good works, being baptized, being a good person‚ while all those things are good and worthwhile, they are not the answer.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.-Ephesians 2:8
The most amazing thing about Heaven is that we don’t have to earn it, in fact cannot earn it. It is something that is freely given to us by God. But just knowing there is a God is not enough.
If I Can’t Earn Heaven, Then How Do I Get There?
According to the Bible, eternal life or salvation comes when you are born again.
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.-John 3:3
Being born again means you have accepted the free gift of salvation from God. It is as simple as believing that Jesus is the Son of God, and confessing Him as Lord. The Book of Romans explains, “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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Salvation comes through believing that Jesus is the Son of God and confessing Him as Lord.” -Romans 10:9-10.
It’s a Matter of Heart
If you believe Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for your sins and rose again, you can know for sure that you’ll go to heaven. You can pray the prayer below and if you mean it with your heart, you will be saved and know that you have eternal life.
God in heaven, I know I’m a sinner and I need Your help. I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is Your Son, that He died on the cross for my sins and God raised Him from the dead. Jesus, right now I open my heart and invite You to come in. Make Yourself real to me. Take control of my life. Keep me from evil and make me the person You want me to be. Be my Lord and Saviour. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
