but you can be sure of your home in heaven if you…
“…all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
Yes, you too have fallen short of Heaven because of your sin. You may be better than many others, but compared to Jesus “…there is none that doeth
good…” Romans 3:12
2. Realize and acknowledge:
“…the wages of sin is death;…” Romans 6:23
There are two kinds of death, physical and spiritual. We inherited both types of death from Adam. Adam’s sin brought physical and spiritual death to all. So,
because of sin, we must die a second death eternally in Hell, unless we find another way to pay for our sin. Revelation 21:8 tells of “…the lake which burneth
with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
3. Realize and acknowledge:
“…Christ died for our sins…” 1 Corinthians 15:3.
Jesus paid the entire price for you by His death on the cross. A Holy and Just God set the price on sin, then in love, paid the price for sin Himself in the
person of Christ.
“the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
He bought eternal life for all. Jesus owns and freely gives eternal life. In fact, He promises that: “…him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” John 6:37
We are saved from the second death by a living Saviour! Christ is alive today! Romans 6:9 wonderfully says: “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead
dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.”
He has power and victory over death and sin and thereby offers the same to you as a gift, not a reward.
5. Realize and acknowledge:
“For whosever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. “ Romans 10:13
This is a promise. The word “whosoever” means you. Not…whosoever is a church member , or is baptized, or is confirmed, or takes communion, or does the
best he can; but whosoever shall call believing in Jesus. He died, was buried, and rose again so that you may believe when John 1:12 says: “But as many as
received him, to them gave he the power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name;”
6. Confess and ask:
Lord Jesus, I believe You died, were buried and rose again to pay for my sins. I am sorry for my sins. Please be merciful to me a sinner
and save me from Hell. Thank you, Lord for saving me today.
