John 3:16; Romans 3:23; 6:23 ; 5:8; 10:9; John 1:12
Have you come to the place in your life that you know for certain that, if you died today, you
would go to heaven?
What would you say to God if He were to ask, “Why should I let you into heaven?”
Did you know that you can be sure? Here are the facts:
1. Heaven is a free gift. You cannot earn it, and you will never deserve it.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus
Ephesians 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from
yourselves, it is the gift of God -- not by works, so that no-one can boast.”

Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of
breaking all of it.”
3. God is merciful - He loves us - but, He is just - He must punish sin.
Jeremiah 31:3 “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-
Ezekiel 18:4 “The soul who sins is the one who will die.”

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:14 “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. . .”
Isaiah 53: 6 “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and
the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
5. It is faith that saves us - that is, believing in Him and trusting Christ alone for salvation -
Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from
yourselves, it is the gift of God--”
Acts 16:31 ”They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved--you and your
It’s that simple. Just put your life in His hands, follow Him every day, and watch how He will
change your life.

life is a miracle of God. The change has been drastic.
