How to go to Heaven
1. Recognize your condition.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short. You may not be as bad of a sinner as others, but the Bible says you are still a sinner.
2. Realize the penalty for sin.
“For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23a).
Just as we earn our wages at work, we have earned death because of our sin. When our body dies it will be buried in the ground, but if our soul dies in sin, it will be buried in hell. This is why we must be saved. That is why Jesus came…”to seek and to save that which was lost.”
3. Believe Christ died for you.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8).
Christ’s great love for us was shown when He died on the cross to pay our sin debt. If we could get to heaven any other way, Jesus would have never came. Jesus died on the cross so we could have eternal life. If you believe in him, you could be saved and go to heaven.
4. Trust Christ alone as your Savior.
“…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23b). “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith. Call upon him now right where you are. Let us help you with a word of prayer. (Realize it’s not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I’m a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I’m trusting you, and you alone, to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me today. Amen.”
