What happens when I die?
Some people say nothing. Some people say reincarnation. Some people say nirvana. Some people say heaven. With all of those options, can I really know? Can anyone?
The central theme of the Bible is that we can know for certain when death comes, we will live in the presence of God in heaven. How can we know for sure we will go to heaven? It is as simple as A-B-C.
You are a sinner.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." -Romans 3:23-
Jesus Christ died for your sins.
"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly." -Romans 5:6- "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 6:23-
Receiving Him into your life by faith and trusting Him as Savior.
"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-
Jesus came on this earth to seek and to save those who were lost. Believe by praying and asking Jesus to be your Savior, and heaven will be your eternal home.
"Dear God, Thank you for working in my life. I know that I have sinned and violated your law. I cannot deal with the consequences of my sin without your help. I believe that you sent your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to die on the cross and pay for my sins. I repent of my sins and believe in my heart that you will save me. I am placing my faith in Jesus Christ and inviting you into my life as Lord and Savior. In Jesus Name, Amen!"
One need not pray this exact prayer to be saved. It is not the words of a prayer that save you but the expression of your heart; you pray to God and ask Him to save you from your sins!
1 John 5:13 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, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
