IF YOU DIED IN THE NEXT 20 MINUTES, WOULD YOU GO TO HEAVEN?
We all want to go to heaven when we die. Jesus says in order to go to heaven we must be born again.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
WHAT MUST WE DO TO BE SAVED?
1. Realize you are a sinner.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
2. Realize because of sin you owe God death.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Rev 20:14-15 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
3. Realize God loves you and sent His son to die for you.
Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Luke 13:3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
5. Receive Christ as your Savior.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
6. Ask Him into your life.
Rom 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath 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.
