Want To Go To Heaven?

Here's How!

Luke 19:10 says, "For the son of man is come to seek and to save that which is lost."

THE greatest question that anyone can be asked and answered correctly–regardless of age, sex, education, social status, or even religious affiliation–is, “If you die, do you know for sure that you will go to Heaven?”

That question can only be answered one way: from the Bible.  Men have been asking and answering that question for millennium.  Many clever titles for a simple Biblical truth have been given by men in hope of helping lost men and women understand what only the Holy Spirit can make understandable as it relates to personal salvation.

Therefore, I will assume that one of the reasons you are reading this entry is because you are interested in where you will spend eternity and that the Holy Spirit is convicting you of your sins and your need of Jesus as your Savior.

As you read what follows, remember the Bible makes no exceptions.  What it says to one it says to all.


Romans 3:22b-23: “…there is no difference: For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”  In this verse, “coming short” means missing the mark.  Some people have come ‘closer’ to hitting the mark than others, meaning some people have not committed the same type of sin and the same number of sins as others.  But the number and type of sin committed by an individual are not as important as the fact that in the sight of God all have been judged as sinners and are in need of a Savior.  The Biblical doctrine of Human Depravity does not declare that mankind is as bad as it can be but is as bad off as it can be.

So, if you are willing to admit YOU are a sinner in the sight of a Holy and sinless God, you are well on your way to securing eternal life through faith in Christ Jesus.


Romans 6:23The wages of sin is death…”  All death is the result of sin, whether it is physical death, spiritual death, or eternal death.  In this verse, Paul is referring to eternal death where all sinners who refuse to trust Christ’s work at Calvary will be eternally separated from God.  You see, God’s plan of salvation demanded that Christ pay the sin debt for all mankind. 

Therefore, potentially all of mankind can be saved.  But actually, the ONLY ones who will be saved are those who put their trust in Christ as their personal Savior believing that when He died on Calvary He died not only for them but as them.


John 3:16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have eternal life.”  According to the Bible, God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.  If you have ever wondered “Why am I here?  What is my purpose?” the answer to those eternal questions can only be answered as we received the gift of God’s Son by faith and the life that He gives when we receive Him as our Savior.

This verse is probably the most recognizable verse in the entire Bible and maybe too little understood.  It is NOT complicated.  Just do exactly what it says and God will do exactly what He said.


Ephesians 2:8–9For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourself, it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast.”  That’s it!  Just believe and receive.  That’s all you can do to be saved.  Jesus has done all the work when He died for our sins on Calvary.  Remember, when He died for us He also died as us.  There is nothing for us as sinners to do, outside of believing on Christ as our Savior, in order to be saved.

Grace is a gift given and received.  It is not something earned or even deserved, but given: given by someone who loves and desires to bestow on anyone and everyone who will believe on Christ the gift of sins forgiven and eternal life.


John 6:   “Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  Pretty simple isn’t it?  Too simple you think?  Well, let me challenge you.  Try it and see what happens.  God cannot lie.  He has not.  He will not.  If you will call on Him in sincerity, He will respond by giving you salvation from all yours sins.

Why don’t you call on Him now.  The words you choose to say are not as important as what you are saying in your heart.  They can be as few as “Lord save me a sinner!” 

Or they can be something like: “God, I know I am a sinner.  I don’t want to pay for my sin debt.  I don’t want to go to Hell when I die.  As best I know how, right now I repent of my sins and trust Christ as my Savior.  I believe that when He died on Calvary He took my place.  By faith–and that’s all I have–I trust Him as my Savior and take my place with Him.  Since He died for me, help me now to live for Him until I can live with Him in Heaven.  Thank you for loving me.  Thank you for saving me.  I love you Jesus.  I love you Jesus!”


1 John 5:12: “He that hath the Son hath life...”  Everlasting life begins when you trust Christ as your Savior
