Are you going to heaven?

God created us to live in heaven with Him forever.

God put Adam and Eve in the garden with one rule….don’t eat the forbidden fruit. They ate and since their disobedience all mankind has been breaking the rules and laws of God. This is called sin. We disobey God by lying, stealing, hating, committing adultery, etc. God told Adam if he sins he will die. He did die, both spiritually and physically. Spiritual death is separation from God. Since Adam all (Romans 3:23) mankind is separated from God because of sin.

But God loves us so much (John 3:16) He decided to make the first move to restore our broken relationship with Him. The problem - removing and forgiving our sin. Because He is holy God just can’t overlook it. It must be punished (Romans 6:23). So, God sent His Son Jesus into the world as a man. He died on a cross to be punished for sin (Romans 5:8)….not his own, but for every person. After three days He rose from the grave.

Now, let’s make this personal: God now offers YOU the forgiveness of sins through Jesus’ death on the cross. The Bible says if you believe in Jesus you will be forgiven of your sins and be brought into a relationship with the God who created and loves you. (Acts 16:31)

Let me suggest a simple prayer asking God to save you from your sins and bring you into a relationship with Him so you might live in heaven forever.

Dear God,

I admit I am a sinner and my sin deserves to be punished. I believe Jesus died For me and took my punishment upon Himself. Right now, I trust in Christ alone as the only way to restore my relationship with You. I thank you for giving me eternal life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
