Heaven…….What a wonderful thought about the place to  spend eternity. But Heaven really can be a reality for everyone, regardless of what you have done or what roads you have travelled. Jesus Christ came to this earth, lived a sinless life and died on the cross for the sins of all mankind. And in doing so, he made the way for anyone to go to Heaven if they would only ask Him to be their Savior. But likewise, Hell is a reality too if we refuse to follow the path to salvation that Jesus Christ established for us. The main thing to understand is that every individual will spend eternity in one of two places…..either in Heaven….or in Hell.
Perhaps no one has ever told you how to go to Heaven…….please allow us the opportunity.

1. Realize That God Loves You

God loves you and has a plan for your life. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

2. Understand That The Bible Says That “All” Men Are Sinners

Our sins have separated us from God. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 God made man in His own image. He gave man the ability to choose right from wrong. We choose to sin. Our sins keep us from God.

3. God’s Word Also Says That Sin Must Be Paid For

“For the wages of sin is death….” Romans 6:23 Wages means payment. The payment of our sin is death and hell, separation from God forever. If we continue in our sin, we shall die without Christ and be without God forever.

4. The Good News Is That Christ Paid For Our Sins

All of our sins were laid on Christ on the cross. He paid our sin debt for us. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, and He arose from the dead. He is alive forevermore. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

5. We Must Personally Pray And Receive Christ By Faith

The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

6. Will You Pray And Receive Christ As Your Savior Right Now?

Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I died today, I would not go to heaven. Forgive my sin, come into my life and be my Savior. Help me live for you from this day forward. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13


If you just followed these steps, then let me reassure you that Jesus Christ is preparing you a home in Heaven. But what’s next? I would suggest that you make your decision known in a Bible-teaching church and follow in believers baptism.
