Did you know that the Bible says that you can know for sure that you can have eternal life and will go to be with God in heaven?
|“These things I have written you …. that you may know that you have eternal life…… (1 John 5:13)The Bible says that heaven is a free gift. “….. the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
It is not earned or deserve “For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2: 8,9)
We cannot earn our way to heaven because we are all sinners.
Because of this universal fact, Man cannot save himself.
In spite of our sin….. God is merciful and therefore doesn’t want to punish us. The Bible says that. “….. God is love.” (1 John 4: 8)
“…… I have loved you with an everlasting love…..” (Jeremiah 31: 3)
The Bible also tells us that God is just. Therefore He must punish sin. “…..I will by no means clear the guilty…..” (Exodus 34:7)
We have a problem:
On the one hand God loves us and doesn’t want to punish us.
On the other hand He is just and must punish sin.
God solved this problem for us in the Person of JESUS CHRIST. Who is He? The Bible tells us that He is the infinite God-Man.
“In the beginning was the Word (Jesus)…. and the Word (Jesus) was God . And the Word (Jesus) was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” (John 1: 1, 14)
|What did He do?He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and rose from the grave to purchase a place for us in heaven.
“All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity (sin) of us all.” (Isaiah 53: 6)Jesus Christ bore our sin in His body on the cross and now offers you eternal life (heaven) as a free gift.
THIS GIFT IS RECEIVED BY FAITH.
