Do you know for sure that if you were to die today you would go to Heaven?
                                          
Heaven is a real place and we can know for sure we are going to Heaven when we die because, the Bible says in I John 5:13, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."

# 1  God loves YOU!
Regardless of your past or what you are doing now, God loves you and will always love you.  It says in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." 
That word whosoever means YOU.  God sent His only begotten Son to die for you because He loves you so much.

#2  The Bible says that all men are sinners.
Our sins have separated us from God.  The Bible says in Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
God made man in His own image.  He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong.  We choose to sin, and our sins keep us from God.

#3  The Bible says that sin MUST be paid for.
The Bible says in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death..." 
Wages means payment.  The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever.  If we continue in our sin, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.

#4  The Bible tells us that the GOOD NEWS is that Jesus Paid for our sins.
All of our sins were laid on Christ on the cross.  He paid our sin debt for us.  The Lord Jesus died on the cross, and He arose from the dead.  We must not only know in our minds or just acknowledge that Christ died for our sins, but we must make it a personal decision.  A one-time surrender of asking Jesus to forgive us of our sins and come into our heart.  The Bible says in Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

#5  We must personally pray and receive Christ by faith
The Bible says in Romans 10:13, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Read that verse again and instead of the word "whosoever" put your name in there.  If you call upon the name of the Lord, God promises that you will be saved!

Pray and receive Christ as your Savior today!

Lord, I know that I am a sinner.  I know that without you I will not go to Heaven.  I am trusting only in Jesus as my Savior.  Forgive my sin, come into my life.  Help me to live for you from this day forward.  In Jesus name, Amen.

Just as you were born to your parents, if you prayed in sincerity when you prayed, you were born into the kingdom of God when you prayed and asked Jesus Christ into your heart!
