Heaven? Can You Really Know For Sure?
The Bible clearly says…
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may KNOW that ye have eternal life.” (I John 5:13)
Since we can know for sure, why not take a moment and find out how?
ALL ARE SINNERS
“all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23)
Yes, all men, including you, have come short of Heaven because of sin.
SIN HAS A PRICE
“the wages of sin is death,” (Romans 6:23)
All men die physically, but all men do not die spiritually. You can be born again through Jesus Christ and be saved from the penalty of sin which is an eternal Hell, a place of “fire and brimstone, which is the second death,” (Revelation 21:8)
JESUS PAID THE PRICE
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Jesus Christ paid the entire price on the cross for our sin. God set the price on sin, which was a
perfect sacrifice, and then God himself gave His own Son to pay the price.
YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us.” (Titus 3:5)
No “good” work can save us. Not Baptism, not Church attendance, not good things. They are not enough to bring salvation from our sin.
YOU CAN BE SAVED TODAY
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
Accepting the fact that we’re sinners and believing that Jesus died and rose again for our sins is all that’s necessary to be 100% sure we’re going to heaven. Of course, you need to tell the Lord, so, why not pray this prayer:
“Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. Forgive me for my sin and come into my heart and save me. Thank you for saving me. Amen.”
