Way To Heaven


A way to heaven

Do you know God’s way to heaven?

The are Four (4) Truths that we must clearly understand to be be sure of going to heaven.

I. GOD LOVES YOU and desires that you:

1. Have eternal life with him.

John 3:16: Jesus is speaking, “For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that everyone who believes in Him may not die but have eternal life.”

2. Have an abundant and meaningful life.

John 10:10: Jesus is speaking, “…I have come in order that you might have life – life in all its fullness.”

But most people aren’t experiencing a meaningful life and aren’t sure that they have eternal life because…

II. Man has sin problem that SEPARATES him from GOD.

man sin

1. Every one has sinned.

Romans 3:23 says, “Everyone has sinned and is far from God’s saving presence.”

2. The penalty of sin is DEATH.

Romans 6:23 ” For sin pays is wage – death;…

What kind of death? The bible talks about two kind of death.

The first death is physical. The second death is spiritual or eternal separation  from God.

We read about this SECOND DEATH in the book of Revelation.

Revelation 21:8 “But the cowards, traitors, perverts, murderers, the immoral, those who practice magic, those who worship idols, and ALL LIARS – the place for them is the lake burning with fire and sulfur, which is the Second Death.”

Since sin separates man from God, what is the solution to his problem?

III. JESUS CHRIST is God’s ONLY way to heaven.Man Jesus God 1

1. He is the ONLY way.

In John 14:6, Jesus says, “…I am the way, the truth and the life; no one goes to the Father except by Me.”

2. He COMPLETELY PAID the penalty of your sins. 

1 Peter 3:18 “For Christ died for sins once and for all, a good man on behalf of sinners, in order to lead you to God… ”

3. His resurrection proves that He is the Son of God, the Messiah, the only Savior.

Romans 1:3-4 “It is about His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ: as
to His humanity, He was born a descendant of David; as to His
divine Holiness, He was shown with great power to be the Son of God by being raised from death.”

 4. He promises Eternal Life.
Jesus Himself said in John 11:25-26 “…I am the resurrection
and the life. Those who believe in Me will live, even though
they die; and those who live and believe in Me will never die.”
Do you believe this?
Merely knowing about what Jesus Christ has done for us Is not enough.
 IV. We must place our FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST to save us.

Man Jesus God

1. You are saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

Ephesians 2:8-10 “For it is by God’s grace that you have been saved

through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but GOD’S GIFT,
so that no one can boast about it. God has made us what we are, and
in our union with Christ Jesus he has created us for a life of good deeds,
which he has already prepared for us to do.”
 If salvation can be expressed in a formula, which do you think is the correct one?
❑ FAITH IN JESUS + GOOD WORKS = SALVATION
or
❑ FAITH IN JESUS + NOTHING = SALVATION => GOOD WORKS
Read Ephesians 2:8-10 again. Which formula is consistent with this passage?
Good works are not the means to salvation, rather 
they are the evidences or by-products of your salvation.

2. Show your faith in Jesus Christ by accepting His gift of eternal life.

Revelation 3:20: Jesus is speaking, “Listen! I stand at the door and knock; if any hear my voice and open the door, I will come into their house and eat with them, and they will eat with me.”

Jesus says that He will come into your heart if you invite Him in. 
Perhaps you have trusted God for many things, but today He is asking 
you to trust Him to save you. Jesus is standing at the door of your 
heart and knocking. He wants to enter your heart, forgive your sins and 
give you His free gift of eternal life which He purchased with His 
precious blood.
Are you willing to repent of all of your sins?
To repent means to turn
away from your sins – to stop doing what is wrong or sinful. Do you
believe that He will save you, forgive your sins and give you His
free gift of eternal life
if you trust in Him to save you? That is His
promise to you and He will always keep His promise.
You can pray this simple prayer to express your faith in Jesus Christ pray
and receive Him into your heart as your Lord and Savior.
You only have to pray this prayer once, but with sincerity, because
when He enters your life, He will never leave you.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, thank you so much for 
loving me. I confess that I am a sinner worthy of 
eternal punishment. Thank you for dying on the 
cross to pay for all of my sins. With your help, 
am turning away from all my sins. Today, I put my 
trust in you as my Lord and Savior and 1 receive 
you into my heart. Thank you for forgiving my sins 
and for coming into my heart. I accept your free 
gift of eternal life. Thank you that one day, I will go 
home to be with you in heaven. From this day on, 
I will follow and obey you. Amen.
If you have just trusted Jesus Christ to save Man Jesus God3
you and expressed that trust by asking Him 
to come into your heart, then the following 
things have happened to you: 
1. You have ETERNAL LIFE. 
1 John 5:11-13 “The testimony is this: God
has given us eternal life and this life has its
source in His Son. Whoever has the Son
 has this life; whoever does not have the
Son of God does not have life. I am writing
this to you so that you may know that
you have eternal life – you that believe in
 the Son of God.”
2. All of YOUR SINS ARE PAID FOR AND FORGIVEN. 

(Past, Present and Future sins)

Colossians 1:13-14 “He rescued us from the power of darkness and brought us safe into the kingdom of His dear Son, by whom we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven.”

 

3. You are A NEW PERSON in God’s eyes.mangod6

A new life has begun for you.

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Anyone who is joined to Christ

is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come.”

 

4. You became A CHILD OF GOD. 

John 1:12 “Some, however, did receive Him and believed in Him;

so He gave them the right to become God’s children.”

  2. We must make it clear that it is not the prayer that saves us… I made the “sinners prayer” 30+ times in a 15 month period. It is God’s work and God’s timing. We must first be drawn in by God (John 6:44); and then we must seek the Lord with ALL of our heart, mind and soul… By God’s pure grace and His mercy we will be received into His eternal kingdom of heaven…

    Blessings in Christ, bruce
