What must I do to enter Heaven?
Long ago, a jail keeper asked this question. There is no more important question that you can ask in life. Many answers are given – doing good works, trusting in one’s baptism, church membership, or being related to a Godly relative. What does God’s Word say?
- Realize that you are a sinner and cannot save yourself. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. – ROMANS 3:23
- Know that Jesus Christ alone has already provided the way of salvation. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. – JOHN 3:16
- Receive Christ as your Lord and Savior. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. – ROMANS 10:13
- Repent of your sins, confess them and forsake them. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – I JOHN 1:9
