Eternity is forever! Have you made preparations?
I am sure you have made a lot of preparations for this life you are currently living. Have you thought about where you are spending eternity? You will spend it somewhere…either Heaven or Hell.
Read the following very carefully to know how God has provided Heaven for every person.
1. Realize and Acknowledge:
“…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.
2. Realize and Acknowledge:
“…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 eternal Hell. It is a place of “fire and brimstone, which is the second death,” Revelation 21:8.
3. Realize and Acknowledge:
“…Christ died for our sins,” I Corinthians 15:3.
Jesus Christ paid the entire price on the cross for your sin. God set the penalty on sin, which was a sinless, perfect sacrifice. God then gave His Own Son to pay that price.
4. Realize and Acknowledge:
“…the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord,” Romans 6:23.
God has already paid for your gift of eternal life with the life of His Son. The gift is yours by putting your trust and total reliance upon the risen and living Lord Jesus Christ who arose from the dead on the third day and is alive forever more.
5. Realize and Acknowledge:
“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13.
Whosoever means you. If you, by simple faith, will trust in Christ’s payment for your sin, you have God’s promise of eternal life and your home in Heaven. Nothing else will do …not church membership, not baptism, not confirmation, and not communion. None of these things can save us from sin. Only Jesus Christ can.
6. Confess and ask:
Why not pray this prayer right now: Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I ask you to forgive me and to save me. I do now accept Jesus Christ as my Savior. Thank you for saving me.
