"Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." (Isaiah 45:22)

 

May I ask you a question?

If you were to die today, would you go to Heaven to be with God?

Hopefully, you have answered yes, but if not, please read on as we would like to show you that you can know.

 

People feel that they will go to Heaven for many different reasons. For example, some think they will go to Heaven because they go to church every Sunday while some think that they are a good person and that good people go to Heaven. We'll, let's see what God has to say.

In the Bible you can find both bad news and good news. The bad news is something about you and the good news is something about what God did for you.

Let's take a look at the bad news first....

 

Bad News #1

The Bible says, you are a sinner.

"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God..." (Romans 3:23)

Even if you are a pretty good person overall, in God's eyes you are still a sinner. In fact, God says there is no good person who does not sin.

"For there is not a just man on earth who does good and does not sin." (Ecc. 7:20)

Being that God is Holy and perfect, He cannot allow sin in His presence in Heaven. So, therefore sin is what keeps you from getting to Heaven.

The bad news gets even worse...

 

Bad News #2

The penalty for sin is death.

"For the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23)

Because of sin, death has been earned. Not just physical death but a spiritual death. In this spiritual death a person will suffer eternal punishment and torment forever.

God is a just God and sin must be punished. We can do nothing about it on our own so the good news is that God provides a solution for our sin.

 

Good News #1

God loves us and sent His Son Jesus Christ to take all of our sin upon Himself and die in our place. His death paid the penalty for ALL of our sins.

"God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace..." (Ephesians 1:7)

Then on the third day, Jesus rose again [came back to life] and defeated death. He is alive today!

That sure is good news, isn't it?

The good news gets even better...

 

Good News #2

You can be saved from having to pay the penalty of your sin through faith in Jesus Christ.

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved..." (Acts 16:31)

"To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins." (Acts 10:43)

So, as you can see from this good news, God made a way out for us. He sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins and take the penalty for us. If we believe in Him as our Savior, He washes us clean from all our sin and gives us eternal life.

"He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." (John 3:36)

 

So, after hearing God's Word here today...Do you believe?

 

Eternal life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who put their faith in Him.

If you have now put your faith in Jesus to save you and would like to say a prayer to verbalize your faith, here is a prayer you can pray (realize it's not the prayer that saves you, it's your faith in Jesus Christ).

"Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins and rose again. Please forgive me of my sins. I am trusting you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen."

 

If you have come to know the Lord after reading God's Word here today please email us and let us know. We would like to pray for you and send you some more information.

 

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8,9)
