Did you say, "I'm not sure" or "I don't know?" If you did, by the time you finish reading this, you can know beyond a shadow of a doubt what you will see and where you will spend your eternity.
The Bible clearly states that we are all sinners and deserving of an eternity in a real place called Hell. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23 So we must admit that we are sinners and cannot save ourselves. “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” I John 1:8
There is nothing that we can do that would merit working out our own salvation and unlocking the door to Heaven . . . not good works, kindness, giving to charity, keeping the Ten Commandments, baptism, or church membership. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us.” Titus 3:5 “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
Long ago Jesus Christ, God’s Son, sacrificially provided the payment for our salvation by dying on the cross for our sins. His shed blood covered the sins of all mankind. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23 “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.” John 3:16
Acknowledging that we are sinners, we must be truly sorry for our sin and repent and ask God for forgiveness. “For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation...” 2 Corinthians 7:10 “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3 Then we must forsake or turn away from our sins.
Accept Jesus’ precious gift of eternal life that only He can give. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts4:12 Don’t put it off because we never know what our future holds. “Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” Proverbs 27:1 “...behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2
Friend, please don’t delay. Accept Jesus today. Salvation is a free gift and we receive it by believing that we are sinners and that Jesus Christ paid the debt for our sins. Repent now, turn from your sin, and ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you. You can do this by simply praying a prayer like this:
I know that I am a sinner. I know that Your Son Jesus died on the cross and shed His precious blood to pay for my sin so that I could spend eternity with You in Heaven. I now repent of my sins and ask You to come into my heart and save me. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. Amen.
“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” John 1:12
It’s our prayer that you prayed the prayer and have received Jesus Christ into your heart and life. Now you can be sure what your eyes will behold when you close your eyes in death and open them in eternity. If you receive Jesus Christ, you will see Heaven and all its splendor.
“Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”
I Corinthians 2:9
