Do you ever wonder if you’ll go to Heaven when you die? Do you ever wonder where you’ll go after this life ends?
I have a message of hope and life! The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, that He was buried, and that He rose on the third day. And because of His sacrificial work of redemption, all people can be saved!
In order to be saved, you must personally receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
How do I do this?
Realize you are guilty before God, but you can be forgiven!
- Romans 3:10 – “There is none righteous, no, not one.”
- Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
- John 3:17 – Jesus came “that the world through Him might be saved.”
Realize there is a punishment for sin, but…Jesus took your place on the cross!
- Romans 5:8 – “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Realize you cannot earn your way to Heaven, but…God offers you the free gift of eternal life!
- Ephesians 2:8-9 – “For by grace are ye saved…not of works…it is the gift of God.”
- Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (See also: Revelation 20:14; 21:8; I John 5:11-13)
Believe that He died for your sins, that He rose from the grave, and that He is the only way for salvation!
- John 3:16 – “That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Receive the gift of eternal life by calling upon Him!
- Romans 10:13 – “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you want to call upon the Lord for His salvation, pray this prayer to Him in humble sincerity:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I admit to You that I am a guilty sinner. I am undeserving of Heaven and I am unable to save myself. I believe you died on the cross to pay for my sins, and that you rose from the grave. I am completely putting my trust in You to be my personal Savior. Please forgive my sin and help me live a life that is pleasing to You. Amen.”
