How to Have Eternal Life
YOU CAN BE SURE OF ETERNAL LIFE!
God wants you to be 100% certain that when you die you will go to Heaven. That's why the Bible says, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life." - I John 5:13
What must you know from the Bible to be 100% sure?
You must realize that you are a sinner.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23
As a sinner, you will pay the price of sin.
"For the wages of sin is death" - Romans 6:23a
"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Revelation. 21:8
Christ has paid the price for you.
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8
Repent, turn from your sin and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. Believe that He died, buried and rose again for your salvation.
"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." - Romans 10:9
If you believe with all your heart these promises, this short pattern of prayer will guide you to talk to God, believing Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. You can do this NOW.
Dear God, I admit that I am a sinner. There is nothing I can do to earn my way to Heaven. Please forgive me of my sins. I believe that your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, died, buried and rose again to pay for my sins. I now trust Him as my personal Lord and Saviour. I ask Him to come to my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
If you pray that prayer, or a prayer like that and you believe with sincerity of heart on what Jesus did on the cross for you, read what God promised…
"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:” - John 1:12
