Have you ever traveled to a destination that you had never been to before?
Unless you had clear directions and a map, you were destined to get lost.God has given us clear directions to get to Heaven. You and I have never been there before—it would be wise to listen to God’s directions instead of making up our own.
How can you get eternal life through Jesus Christ?
Accept that you are a sinnerOur sins have separated us from God. Before Jesus will become your Saviour and give you eternal life in Heaven, you must first know and accept that you are a sinner and in need of Him to save you.
Agree that your sin must be paid for with death and hell.
According to God’s Word, we are all sinners, and our sin must be paid for. If we fail to trust Christ in this life, we will die without Him and spend eternity separated from God in a literal lake of fire called “hell.”
Believe that Christ died for your sins and then rose again.The best news that anyone could ever tell you is that God loves you and Jesus died for you. All our sins were laid on Him. He paid our sin debt in full. He then overcame the power of death by raising back to life.
Turn from your sin and trust Christ as your personal Saviour.
You can believe that God loves you. You can believe that you are a sinner and that sin must be paid for; but if you are not willing to trust God by accepting the Lord Jesus as your personal Saviour, you will die without Christ.
