The Biblical Way to Heaven


1. We have all sinned.

              For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

The first step in the Way of Salvation is realizing you are a sinner in need of a Saviour. We have all fallen short of God's requirements, for at one time or another, we have all deliberately chosen to disobey God.

 

2. There is a payment for sin.

              For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

The payment for sin is death and eternal separation from God in a place called Hell. 

              And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15)  

3. Jesus paid for our sin.

                But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

Jesus paid our sin debt when He died on the Cross of Calvary. 

                 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. (John 3:16) 

4. We must believe in Jesus.

               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. (Romans 10:9) 

 

While in prison Paul and Silas were asked by the jailor what he needed to do to be saved. They responded, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved..." (Acts 16:31)

 

The Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus, 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. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

You can trust Jesus for salvation today. From your heart, would you pray and ask Jesus to save you?

Let us help you word a prayer. (Realize it's not mere words that save, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)

 

                "Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that you died on the cross and paid the penalty for my sin. I believe that 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."

If you trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour would you please send me a note letting me know so I can pray for you. Thank you!
