If YOU DIED TODAY, ARE YOU 100% SURE YOU WOULD BE IN HEAVEN? YOU CAN BE SURE!
Jesus said, …”repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). What does it mean to repent and believe the gospel? My friend, I believe there are basically four things you must admit and believe to know that you are truly saved:
I. EVERYONE IS A SINNER
Rom. 3:10, “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.”
Rom. 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
When we try to measure up with God and His righteousness, we realize nobody is righteous and everybody has sinned. Yes, some people have sinned worse than others, but we have all come short. Would YOU believe and admit that you are a sinner in the sight of God?
II. EVERYONE OWES A SIN-DEBT
Rom. 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death…”
Rev. 20:14, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”
The payment for our sin is death. The word death means separation. If our sin is not paid for when we die the first death, the Bible says we will have to die the second death. The second death is separation from God forever in the lake of fire. Would YOU believe and admit that if you had to pay for your sin you would have to die and be forever separated from God in hell?
III. EVERYBODY’S SIN-DEBT HAS BEEN PAID
Rom. 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Rom. 5:8, “But God commendeth (proved or demonstrated) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
The Bible says eternal life (heaven) is a gift. A gift has to be free, or it is not a gift. When you receive a gift it is free to you, but it cost the giver a price. Jesus Christ paid the price for your sin. Do not try to clean up (pay for) yourself. Just come as a sinner, and Jesus will clean you up! Would YOU believe and admit that only Jesus can pay for your sin?
IV. EVERYONE CAN BE SAVED
Rom. 10:9, 10, 13, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Although Jesus died to pay for everyone’s sin-debt, not everyone is on their way to heaven. You must personally repent and receive God’s gift of eternal life. Would YOU believe and admit what Jesus has done for you and ask Him to save you? If you will believe in your heart at this moment that you need Jesus to save you, then confess with your mouth to Jesus in prayer something like this:
Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner and that my sin would send me to hell. I also know and believe that you paid for my sin on the cross. Please save me and give me eternal life. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. Amen
EVERY BELIEVER CAN KNOW THEY HAVE ETERNAL LIFE
I John 5:13, “These things have I written you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
