Do you wanna know what does it take ……………….
TO GET TO HEAVEN ?
Money & Status ?
Good works & Tradition ?
Religion & Duty ?
Many people sincerely think that if they perform certain ceremonies, acquire enough knowledge of God, or if their good works outweigh their bad ones they can go to heaven. However, the Bible teaches that ‘there is not one righteous man upon the earth that does good and sins not’ (Ecclesiastes 7:20). God has declared in His Word that ‘All men have sinned and fallen short of his glory.’ (Romans 3:23). ‘The wages for sin is death or eternal separation from God’ (Romans 6:23). This means that we will all die one day, and if we die without making our peace with God, we will be eternally separated from Him in a terrible place called “Hell”.
But here is the greatest news for every person on this earth. The Bible tells us that God, in His great love, has made a way to make peace with Him and has provided a Saviour for the whole human race (John 4:42). God sent Jesus Christ into the world to be the Peace-Maker and the only Saviour between sinful men and a holy God (1Timothy 2:5).
Jesus was God who came into this world in the form of a man and did what no other person in human history has ever done. He healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, and even raised the dead back to life, proving that He was the true and living God. The Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ came for one purpose – to be the only Saviour of the human race (Luke 19:10).
Because the payment for your sins and mine was death, Jesus took the sins of the entire human race on His sinless body and gave His life on the cross of the Calvary as a sacrifice for us. Jesus not only did and paid for the sins of the world, but after three days He rose again ( As He predicted in Matthew 16:21 ), and He ascended into heaven. His ascension into heaven was witness by a multitude of people.
God has provided the way for the human race to receive eternal life and go to heaven (instead of hell) when they die. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life and no one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). The Bible promises the surety of eternal life to anyone who believes upon Jesus and receives salvation and forgiveness through His name. ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, Jesus, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have an eternal life.’ (John 3:16)
Jesus said’ “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me, though he dies physically, yet will he live eternally” (John 11:25). ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.’ (Acts 16:31) So my friend, to go to heaven there is nothing you have to do except believe and put your entire trust in Jesus as your Saviour and you will receive the free gift of eternal life.
If you would like to be sure of going to heaven, you can ask God to save you right now. Pray a simple prayer like below. If you say this prayer even once, asking God to save you by simply putting your faith in Jesus Christ alone for your entire eternal destiny, the Bible says that you will be born spiritually into God’s royal family (John 1:12). God will become your father and Guide and you will one day spend eternity with Him. Here it goes :
” Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. I want to thank You for sending Jesus into the world to save me. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for all my sins and that He rose again after three days. Jesus, forgive me and save me. Amen. ”
