Step Of Faith"
In your personal opinion...
What do you understand it takes for a person to go to heaven? Consider how the
Bible answers this question. It is a matter of Faith.
There are some steps to take in this pathway of Faith. Let us look at the Word
is for Forgiveness
We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God's forgiveness.
"In Him (meaning Jesus) we have redemption
through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses" (Ephesians 1:7)
is for Available
Forgiveness is available. It is, available for All.
"For God loved the world in this way; He
gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish
but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
But not Automatic.
"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord,
:Lord!' will enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 7:21)
is for Impossible
It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven, because of who He is; God is
loving and just. His judgment is against sin.
"For judgment is without mercy." (James
Because of who we are; every person is a sinner.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
But how can a sinful person enter heaven, when God allows no sin?
is for Turn
Turn means repent.
Turn from something, sin and self.
"But unless you repent, you will all
perish" (Luke 13:3)
Turn to Someone; trust Christ only.
"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is
Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be
saved" (Romans 10:9)
H is for Heaven
Heaven is eternal life.
Here..." I have come that they may have
life and have it in abundance" (John 10:10)
"If I go away and prepare a place for you,
I will come back and receive you to Myself, so that where I am you may be also"
How can a person have God's forgiveness, heaven and eternal life and Jesus as
personal Savior and Lord? By trusting in Christ and asking Him for forgiveness.
