Securing Your Place in Eternity

What if you died the moment you started reading this blog? Do you have the assurance, do you know for certain, that you are going to heaven?

The Bible says there are 4 things a person must do to go to heaven:
  1. REALIZE you are a sinner. "All have sinned; all fall short of God's glorious standard." (Romans 3:23 NLT).
  2. RECOGNIZE that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you and rose from the dead in fulfillment of the Scriptures. "God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." (Romans 5:8 NLT).
  3. REPENT of your sins. "Now turn from your sins and turn to God, so you can be cleansed of your sins." (Acts 3:19 NLT).
  4. RECEIVE Jesus Christ into your life. "Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13 NLT).
If you haven't received Jesus as Lord and Savior, why not do so right now and make that committment? Pray for forgiveness and allow Jesus to be the Lord of your life.
