Did you know
that the Bible tells how you can know for sure that you have eternal
life and will go to be with God in Heaven? The Bible says in 1
John 5:13, These things I have written to you
you may know that you have eternal life. Heres how
you can know for sure.
Heaven (Eternal Life) is a free gift. The Bible says,
the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 6:23) And because Heaven is a gift, like any other genuine
gift, it is not earned or deserved. Therefore, no amount of personal
effort, good works, or religious deeds can earn a place in heaven
The Bible also says, By grace you have been saved through
faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not
of works, lest any man should boast. Why is it that no one
can earn his way to Heaven? Because
Man is a sinner. The Bible says, All have sinned and fall
short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) Sin is transgressing
Gods law and includes such things as lying, lust, cheating,
deceit, anger, evil thoughts, immoral behavior, and more.
And because of this, man cannot save himself. If you wanted to
save yourself by good deeds, do you know how good you would have
to be? The Bible says you would have to be perfect. Therefore
you shall be perfect, just as your Father in Heaven is perfect.
(Matthew 5:48) With such a high standard, no one can save himself
for God also says, Whoever shall keep the whole law, and
yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. (James 2:10)
In spite of our sin, however
God is merciful and therefore doesnt want to punish us.
This is because
God is love
(1 John 4:8),
and He says, I have loved you with an everlasting love.
(Jeremiah 31 :3b).
But the same Bible that tells us that God loves us all also tells
us that God is just, and therefore must punish sin. He says,
I will by no means clear the guilty
and The soul who sins shall die. (Ezekiel 18:4)
We have a problem; we have all sinned. The penalty for sin is
death. We need forgiveness so that we can have a right relationship
God solved this problem for us in the person of Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us clearly that Jesus is the infinite God-Man.
In the beginning was the Word (Jesus)
and the Word
(Jesus) was God
and the Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt
(John 1:1, 14).
Jesus Christ came to earth and lived a sinless life, but while
on earth, he died on the cross to pay the penalty of our sins
and rose from the grave to purchase a place for us in Heaven.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone
to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity
of us all. (Isaiah 53:6)
God hates our sin, but because of His love for us, He has placed
them all on His Son. Christ bore our sin in His body on the cross.
Now Jesus Christ offers you eternal life (Heaven) as a free gift.
This free gift is received by faith. Faith is the key that opens
the door to heaven. Many people mistake two things for saving
Saving faith is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
It means resting upon Christ alone and what He has done rather
than what you have done to get in to Heaven. Believe (trust)
on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved
You have just read the greatest story ever told about the greatest
offer ever made by the greatest person who ever lived Jesus
Christ. The question God is asking you now is, Would you
like to receive a gift of eternal life?
Because this is such an important matter, lets clarify just
what this involves. It means, first of all, that you transfer
your trust from what you have been doing to what Christ has done
for you on the cross.
It means, next, that you receive the resurrected, living Christ
into your life as Savior. He says, Behold I stand at the
door and knock (at the door of your life). If any man hears my
voice and opens the door, I will come in to him. (Revelation
It means further that your receive Jesus Christ into your life
as Lord. He comes as Master and King. There is a throne room in
your heart, and that throne is rightly His. He made you. He bought
you, and He wants to take His rightful place on the throne of
It means, finally, that you repent of your sins. That means that
you are willing to turn from anything you have been doing that
is not pleasing Him and to follow Him as He reveals His will to
you in His Word.
Now, if this is what you really want, you can go to God in prayer
right where you are. You can receive His gift of eternal life
through Jesus Christ right now.
with the heart one
believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made
for whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved. (Romans 10:10,13) If you want to receive
the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, then call on Him,
asking Him for this gift right now. Heres a suggested prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ, I know I am a sinner and do not deserve
eternal life. But, I believe You died and rose from the grave
to purchase a place in Heaven for me. Lord Jesus, come into my
life; take control of my life; forgive my sins and save me. I
repent of my sins and now place my trust in You for my salvation.
I accept the free gift of eternal life.
If this prayer is the sincere desire of your heart, look at what
Jesus promises to those who believe in Him. Most assuredly,
I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.
(John 6:47) Welcome to Gods family! If you have truly repented
(forsaken, turned away) from your sins, placed your trust in Jesus
Christs sacrificial death, and received the gift of eternal
life, you are now a child of God! Forever!
Welcome to the Family of God! But as many as received Him,
to them He gives the right to become children of God to those
who believe in His name. (John 1:12)
