I do to go to Heaven?
Is Heaven Real? This is a question that people
ask themselves often. And having the correct
answers to these questions may determine where
you spend eternity. The simple truth is: There
is a heaven. Heaven is a real place.
Unfortunately sin is not allowed into heaven -
and therefore anybody who has sinned is
prohibited from entering heaven. That means that
there is no one who qualifies for entrance into
heaven simply because they have been a 'good
person' - or have had 'good intentions'.
Entrance into heaven is reserved only for those
people whose sins have been forgiven and
There is an Answer:
When Jesus went to the cross, He suffered for
sin (our wrong-doings that separate us from
God). Even if you're a relatively good person,
you've still sinned because you were born as a
"sinner" - therefore your are separated from
God, without any way to have a real relationship
The first step towards heaven is to admit
that you have sinned, that you are helpless to
reach God (or heaven) on your own.
"Everyone has sinned. No
one measures up to God's glory." (Romans
Fortunately, God had a great plan to restore us
to Himself. He let His only Son become a man and
take the punishment for sin that we rightly
deserved. Only Jesus could have done this,
because only Jesus lived a sinless life. No one
else could ever qualify to do what Jesus did.
The third step towards heaven
is to accept Jesus by faith as your Lord
and Savior. God has promised that everyone who
calls upon the Lord Jesus Christ and admits that
they have sinned, agrees that that Jesus is the
only way to God, and accepts Jesus by faith as
Lord and Savior: will receive eternal life.
"Whoever calls upon the
name of the Lord will be saved" (Romans
You can easily do this by praying a prayer
such as this one from your heart:
"Dear God, I see that my sins have separated me
from You and I repent of sin. Thank You that you
loved me so much that You sent Jesus to suffer
and die on my behalf, so that I could receive
eternal life. I believe Jesus died for me and
rose again, and I receive Him as my Savior right
now. Jesus, You are my Lord and I'll live for
You from this day on. Thank You, Father for
If you prayed this prayer, then we know He
heard you and saved you because you
didn't act on some man's opinion, you acted on
God's holy Word that states: "Say
with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord." Believe in
your heart that God raised him from the dead.
Then you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)
