How You Can Know That You Can Go To Heaven
You can know!
The Bible tells us in many different verses that we can know that we can have eternal life. Here is one of those verses:
1 John 5:13 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, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
Can you say that you are 100% sure that you will go to Heaven when you die? If not, you will find the following truths helpful in understanding this important subject.
We have all sinned
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
God’s Word reminds us that we all have sinned. At one time or another we have all diliberately chosen to disobey God.
Sin has a penalty
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A wage is a payment. The payment for your sin is death and separation from God in a place that the Bible calls hell.
Jesus paid the penalty
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
The word commendeth means proved. God proved His love for you by giving His own Son, Jesus to die on the cross for your sin.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Believe on Jesus today
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
To believe on Jesus Christ as Saviour means to believe the He died for you, was buried, and rose again the third to pay the price for your sin and that He is the only way to Heaven.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
You can express your belief on Jesus by calling on Him in prayer.
“Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died on the cross and paid the penalty for my sin. I believe you rose from the dead three days later. I am placing my faith in you alone to forgive my sin and save me. Thank you for giving me eternal life. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!”
