Getting to Heaven
How do I get to Heaven?
Every person is a sinner and in need of forgiveness. This can only be given by Jesus Christ.
Below are some verses from the Bible that explain how you can be saved and made ready to go to Heaven someday.
Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
We must all realize that we are sinners.
Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Sin entered into the world through Adam (the first man) and all men since then are sinners.
Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Because we are sinners we deserve eternal death, but because Christ Died on the Cross for our sins, was buried in a grave and rose in three days having power over death we can be saved. It is His free gift to us because of His love for us. There is no other way to have our sins forgiven and go to Heaven.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
If you believe in your heart God has raised Christ from the dead and you are willing to confess Him with your mouth then He will save you from what you deserve and give you eternal life with Him in heaven.
Rom 10:9-10 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. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
So if you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God.
In Luke 18:13, a sinner prayed: "God be merciful to me a sinner."
Just share these words with Jesus and mean it sincerely from your heart:
Oh, LORD, I know I am a sinner.
I believe Jesus died on the Cross for me.
I now receive You as my Savior.
Thank You for forgiving me of my sins, and giving me
the gift of eternal life,
Thank you for saving me today!
