How to get to Heaven

Many people think getting to heaven is a complicated process that includes doing good deeds in the hope that maybe God will be in a good mood with you when you get to those “pearly gates”. Nothing could be further from the truth!

Isaiah 64:6     But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away.

Romans 3:23  …for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…

Getting to heaven requires a lot more than good deeds, but it’s easier than you think. The Bible is very clear what it means to get to heaven:

Romans 10:9     …that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

John 3:36     He that believes on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.

Romans 6:23     For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

I John 5:11 …God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

I John 5:12    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

There is no formula, secret prayer or method. It’s simple, give up your sins, turn away from your old lifestyle, make a real, from the heart decision to follow Jesus and make Him the King of every part of your life. Following Jesus is the most fulfilling life you could ever live. It will also be the hardest thing you’ve ever done because it requires a total change in the way you live your life.

Old habits, addictions and activities will cease to bring you the fulfillment they once did because sin and Jesus can’t exist in the same person. It’s only with the support of a community of fellow Bible believing Jesus followers that the fullness of this walk can be lived.
