(The Bible Way to Heaven)

If you died today, are you 100% sure you would go to Heaven? . . . The Bible says you can be!
"These things have I written...that ye may know that ye have eternal life," I JOHN 5:13

Consider life's greatest question:
"What must I do to get to Heaven?"

A. You must understand where you stand with God.

1. Your sins separate you from God.
    "your iniquities have separated between you and your God," ISAIAH 59:2
2. That includes everyone.
    "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" ROMANS 3:23
    * Jesus died on the cross 2000 years ago to pay for your sins.

B. You must understand Heaven cannot be earned.

1. Not by doing enough good things.
    "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us..." TITUS 3:5.
2. Not by being baptized, joining a church, or obeying the Ten Commandments.
    "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."   EPHESIANS 2:8-9

C. You must be willing to change your direction from sin.

1. Sin will take you to Hell.
    "the wages of sin is death;" ROMANS 6:23
2. Faith in yourself, your baptism, or your church will cause you to miss Heaven.
    ROMANS 3:24-25; JOHN 1:12-13; JOHN 3:3
3. You must be willing to repent of your sins.
    "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out..." ACTS 3:19
    "The Lord is...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."   II PETER 3:9
    * Repentance means to change your mind or attitude about sin.

D. You must believe in Jesus Christ with all your heart.

1. You must receive Jesus Christ by faith as your personal Saviour.
    "being justified by faith," ROMANS 5:1
    * Eternal life was paid for by the shed blood of Christ.   Accept it as a free gift.
    "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."   ROMANS 10:13
