How Can I Go To Heaven?
More important than where a person goes to church is where a person will spend eternity.
When asked about going to Heaven, people might have different responses:
- I think I am
- Who really knows
- I’m not a bad person
- I try to help people
- My parents/friends go to church
- Aren’t we all already children of God
The reality of the matter is that the Bible is very clear on what a person needs to do to go to Heaven when they die.
First of all, we need to realize that God loves us.
“For God so loved the world, that he have his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
~ John 3:16
We need to realize that we are all imperfect people, sinners.
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one”
~ Romans 3:10
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”
~ Romans 3:23
We need to realize that sin has a punishment — Hell.
“For the wages of sin is death…”
~ Romans 6:23
We need to realize that Jesus died to pay for our sins and take away the punishment of Hell.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
~ Romans 5:8
We need to pray and ask Jesus to save us from the punishment of sin.
“Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner,
and that I deserve to go to Hell,
but I don’t want to.
I believe that you died for my sins
and I ask you now to please save me.
I trust in you and you alone to get to Heaven.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
This is the most important decision that anyone can make because it will last the longest.
There is nothing else that a person has to do to go to Heaven. Only Jesus Christ can save you!
