How to go to Heaven in 0 Easy Steps
Here, in short and simple form, is all you need to know in order to go to heaven.
1. Every single person is a sinner.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Rom 3:23)
As sinners, we are separated from God, who is holy, righteous and just. Our destiny is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire.
2. Christ’s death for our sins
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day . . . (1Cor 15:3,4)
Although we deserved damnation and judgment, Christ paid for our sins on the cross. He then demonstrated his Deity and his victory over death by rising from the dead. Christ, being fully man and fully God, paid the penalty for our sins that we cannot pay.
3. We can have eternal life by placing our faith in Christ’s shed blood for our sins.
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)
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (Colossians 1:14)
Knowing that we are sinners and that Christ died for us, we should respond by placing our faith in Christ’s payment for sin. We are not saved by our own good works but by the grace of God. Grace can be thought of as unmerited favor or:
What amazing love! God sent his Son to die that we, who are sinners, might live!
By placing our faith in Christ’s shed blood and nothing else, we can have eternal life. Isn’t today a good day to place your faith in Christ? There will never be a better time. In fact, there is no guarantee of another day. Trust Christ today.
