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.
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?
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.”
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?
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
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.”
❑ FAITH IN JESUS + NOTHING = SALVATION => GOOD WORKS
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.”
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.
(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.
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.”
