If you died right now, do you know for sure that you would go to heaven?  You can!  Here are four facts that you need to know…

  • Fact 1:  God says that all men are sinners.  “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,”  Romans 3:23.  If you are honest with yourself, you know you are a sinner.  We are all sinners before a Holy God.

     

  • Fact 2:  God says that the wages of your sin is death.  “For the wages of sin is death:  but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”  Romans 6:23.  We have earned death because of our sin, and what we deserve is death… separation from God in hell.
  • Fact 3:  God says that even though we are sinners, He sent Christ to die for our sin.  “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8.  On the cross, Jesus paid the penalty (death) for our sin.
  • Fact 4:  God says that to be saved and have your sin forgiven, each and every person must call on the Lord Jesus Christ to be his or her personal SAVIOR!  “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.”  Romans 10:9.

It’s as simple as A-B-C

  • Acknowledge that you are a sinner before God.
  • Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from your sin, and rose again on the third day.
  • Call on the Lord Jesus Christ in prayer to save you.

When we pray and ask Jesus Christ to save us and forgive us our sin, we receive Him into our heart. “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” John 1:12

Here’s a sample prayer.  (There are no magic words, just mean it from your heart.)

Dear Jesus,

I admit that I’m a sinner.  Please forgive me for my sins.  I believe you died on the cross to pay for my sins and rose again on the third day.  Please take me to heaven when I die.  I right now accept you as my personal Saviour.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
