|Life is the Journey - But What's the Destination?
If you don't know Jesus, you won't like the destination. With Jesus, you get Life, and that more abundantly.
Without Jesus, though - you get Hell. Forever
I don't say that - the Bible says that. But it doesn't have to come to that! You can ask Jesus to come into your heart, to be your Savior and your LORD, to wash away all your sins, and to make you into the person HE wants you to be, so that you can live forever in Heaven.
How to Get to Heaven
You get to Heaven by agreeing with GOD that you have sinned - you have done things that are not right, such as lying, or taking things that aren't yours. We all have done this, myself included. The Bible says:
Romans 3:23 KJV
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Your sins - the wrong things you have done - may seem little to you, but just one sin is enough to break the relationship GOD wants to have with you. And that sin carries a terrible price with it.
Romans 6:23a KJV
For the wages of sin is death;
But there's good news!The rest of Romans 6:23 says:
but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD, came to earth as a baby, lived a perfect life without sin, then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins for us. And then HE rose to life again on the third day, to show that HIS death was accepted to give us Life!
If you want to ask Jesus to save you, if you want to accept HIS death to pay for your sins, then talk to GOD. Just wherever you are, say something like this:
GOD, I know I have sinned against YOU. I have done things that are wrong, and that will send me to Hell. I don't want to go to Hell! Please save me. I believe that Jesus is the Son of GOD who gave HIS life to pay for my sins. HIS blood saves me, and washes me from all my sins. Jesus, be my GOD and my LORD. I want to love YOU with all my heart all the rest of my life, and obey YOU, according to what the Bible says. Make me YOURS. Amen.
The Bible tells us:
Romans 10:9-10 KJV
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.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Did you ask Jesus to save you? If you did, glory! Go out there and live for HIM - read the Bible - live in obedience to HIM.
