If you died today do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven?  If you were to stand before God and He were to ask you why you should be let into His heaven – what would you say?

There are FOUR things that God wants YOU to know:

1.We are all sinners

  Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” – HCSB

2.God is a holy God and must judge our sin.  It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.

  Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  – HCSB

  James 2:13a – “For judgment is without mercy…” - HCSB

3.Christ took our judgment upon Himself

  Romans 5:8 – “But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us!” – HCSB

  John 3:16 – “For God loved the world in this way:  He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but
  have eternal life.” – HCSB

  Ephesians 1:7a – “In Him (Jesus) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses…” – HCSB

4.You can call on the Lord in this moment and you will be saved… That’s a promise!

  Turn from Sin:
  Luke 13:3b – “…But unless you repent, you will all perish as well!” – HCSB

  Turn to Christ:
  1 Corinthians 15:3b-4 – “…That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day
  according to the Scriptures.”

  Romans 10:9 – “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be
  saved.”

  Romans 10:13 – “For everyone who calls on the name of Lord WILL be saved.” – HCSB

  The Reward:
  An eternal life in Heaven is yours to claim.

  John 10:10b – “I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance.” – HCSB
  John 14:3 – “If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also.”

“Lord, I realize that I am a sinner and that You love me anyway.  Thank you for dying on the cross and rising from the grave for me.  Please forgive me for my sin and come into my heart because only You can save me.  Help me to trust You and You alone and follow You all of my days.  Amen”
