Do you ever wonder what will happen to you when you die? Everything in the Bible is written so that we may know how much God loves us, and what we have to do to go to heaven and live with Him for eternity.
(1 John 5:13 NIV) I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
1. Recognize how much God loves you!
(John 3:16 NIV) "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
2. Recognize that we are all sinners!
(Isa 53:6 NIV) We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way ...
3. Know that Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins!
(Rom 4:25 NIV) He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
4. You must personally invite Jesus to be the Lord (Master) of your life!
(Rom 10:13 NIV) for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
You can do this right now, in prayer (talking to God) - by praying a prayer like the one below:
Pray this prayer right now "Dear God, I know that Jesus is Your Son and that He died on the cross and was raised from the dead. Because I have sinned and need forgiveness, I ask Jesus to come into my heart. I am willing to change the direction of my life by acknowledging Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and by turning away from my sins. Thank You for giving me forgiveness, eternal life, and hope. In Jesus' Name, amen."
There is Hope!
