Perhaps the most often asked question is: “How can I know that I am going to Heaven when I die? It is asked by young and old, male and female, and people from all kinds of backgrounds. It may be from a church member who had been faithful to a church for years, or from a person who has never been to church.
Often, the person has made some kind of a decision or had some kind of experience that has satisfied them until now, but there is a question in their mind that causes them to wonder. I usually ask them if they are satisfied that what they have done, or what they experienced is enough to get them inside God’s Heaven.
You see, it is not what satisfies us, or makes us feel religious that will take us to Heaven. It is only the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross—His death, burial, and resurrection that will atone for our sins. His precious blood is the only antidote for the penalty of sin, death.
I recommend to anyone who is not positive that you are ready to meet God and here His, “Welcome Home!”, that you pray this prayer, right now, where you are: “Lord, if I never have before, I right now confess that I am a sinner, and I want Jesus Christ to be my personal savior. Forgive all of my sins, and give me eternal life as you have promised in the Bible.” If you will do that, I can tell you that God will save you, and you will be ready for Heaven.if you just prayed that prayer. We will send you some information that will help you get started living for the Lord.
