Am I Going To Heaven?

You Can Be Sure!

Some people THINK if they do these things they will make it into Heaven:

All of these make (some) sense, but is this what the Bible teaches about the gift of God and knowing you have eternal life?

  • Keep the Ten Commandments…
  • Do Good Works…
  • Turn from Sin…
  • Live a Good Life…
  • Go to Church…
  • Make Christ the Lord of your Life…
  • Tithe or Give Money to the Poor…
  • Be Baptized in Water…
  • _________________________

There is nothing more wonderful in life than discovering God’s plan for eternal life, and you can KNOW for certain that you will spend eternity with God.

ETERNAL LIFE REALLY IS A FREE GIFT…

The Bibles says, “…the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23b).

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; It is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast“  (Ephesians 2:8,9).

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us“  (Titus 3:5).

There is not one thing you can do to earn a place in Heaven.  It is a gift, and none of us deserve to go.  It is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone that will get you to Heaven.

WE HAVE A PROBLEM…

The Bible says,  “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God”  (Romans 3:23).

God is holy and righteous. Every person who has ever lived has missed God’s standard of perfection. We fall short of His perfect morality, justice and love. We miss the mark and sin.

For the wages (something we earn) of sin is death…”  (Romans 6:23a).

Sin has a consequence.  It is death, or eternal separation from God.

Fortunately, there is more,  “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord“ (Romans 6:23b).

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SOLUTION…
That’s why John the Baptist introduced Jesus to the world when he said,  “…Behold! The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world“  (John 1:29).
     The Person of Jesus Christ:
Jesus said…, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
 
The Bible says,  “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
 
“…What must I do to be saved?… Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved…”  (Acts 16:30-31).
 
We are saved by Someone, the Lord Jesus Christ. Not just anyone, but the infinite God-man.  Jesus is fully and completely divine (John 1:1-23; 20:27-31) and human (Luke 2, Galatians 4:4-5). He died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for our sins and to purchase a place for us in heaven, which He offers as a free gift.
 
     The Provision of Jesus Christ:

The Bible says, “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried (proof that He died), and that He rose again the third day according to the Scripture, and that He was seen (proof of the resurrection) by (many)…”  (1 Corinthians 15:3,4).

But God demonstrates (proved) His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”  (Romans 5:8).

For He (God) made Him (Christ) who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him”  (2 Corinthians 5:21).

But to him who does not work, but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness“  (Romans 4:5).

You don’t get to Heaven by being good. The person who believes in Christ is credited as the righteousness of God in Christ. He has removed the barrier of sin, and God no longer credits unrighteousness to you. Christ death paid the penalty for our sins and His resurrection made eternal life possible. What an incredible exchange to all who believe in Him alone.

     The Promise of Jesus Christ:

For God so loved the world,

that He gave His only begotten Son,

that whoever (your name)

BELIEVES in HIM (Jesus Christ)

 should not perish, but have everlasting life“  (John 3:16).

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…”  (1 John 5:13).

Christ died, that’s history. Christ died for me, that’s eternal salvation! 

Do you believe in Jesus Christ?  If you do, on the authority of God’s word, you can KNOW you have eternal life.

The Bible says, Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me (Christ) has (possesses now) everlasting life“ (John 6:47).
 
ETERNAL LIFE IS ETERNAL…
The Bible says, “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent” (John17:3).

And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand” (John 10:28).

Eternal life is more than a quality of life that’s filled with joy. It is life that never ends. Jesus would have given it a different name if you could lose it. He gives eternal life to all who believe in Him.

Doesn’t it make sense to believe on the One who came back from the dead and trust Him for eternal life?  Why not do it today and be sure?

“…What must I do to be saved?… Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved…” (Acts 16:30-31).
