What God Says about Going to Heaven
Man has many ideas and theories about heaven. Religion after religion tries to put their own twist on salvation. Which is correct? Are any correct? What is the truth? The truth is found in the Bible, God’s Words to us. God says:
1. You must realize that you are a sinner before a Holy God.
Romans 3:10-12 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
2. You must realize that there is a penalty for your sin.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death…”
Revelation 20:14-15 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
3. You must realize that you cannot earn salvation.
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
4. You must realize that Christ fully paid the penalty of sin for us.
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 6:23 “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
5. You must accept by faith God’s provision for salvation.
John 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and the that believeth not on the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
The word “believe” means “to trust; to rely on.” We must trust fully in what Christ has done for us: He shed His blood, died, and rose again to pay for our sin.
