How can I be saved?

I'm convinced that I have some exceedingly good news for you. This news doesn't cost a penny, there are no strings attached and it could inevitably change your life forever. If you want to hear this good news, all you have to do is answer two brief but very important questions. After you answer the questions, good news will follow.

Here's the first question:

Have you come to the place in your spiritual life where you know for SURE, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you have eternal life?

 Yes No  Maybe  I don't know


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the second question...

You answered YES! The Bible tells us that we can know for sure that we're going to heaven! Take a look:These things I have written to you that you may KNOW that you have eternal life. 1 John 5:13Now here's the second and final question. It's a bit harder than the first. Just try to answer it as honestly as you possibly can.

Suppose you were to die tonight and stand before God... what would you say if He asked you "Why should I let you into my heaven?"

I'm without fault. I deserve to go to heaven.I've been nearly perfect. God will overlook the few mistakes in my life.I've always been very good. I tried to follow the 10 commandments.I haven't really been that bad. I never hurt anyone and God will overlook the things I've done wrong because he's a loving God.I cannot enter heaven on my own merit.

I don't know what I would say.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the second question...

Your answer indicated that you aren't so sure about heaven. Now I KNOW you're going to like the news I have for you! But before I give you the good news, let me share with you something very interesting. The Bible tells us we can know for sure that we're going to heaven! That means YOU! Take a look:

These things I have written to you that you may KNOW that you have eternal life. 1 John 5:13

This means that we don't have to guess about life after death. If there's one thing you really want to be sure of in this life, it's where you'll be going after it's over. Fortunately, the Bible tells we can be certain about heaven!Here's the second and final question. It's a bit harder than the first. Just try to answer it as honestly as you possibly can.

Suppose you were to die tonight and stand before God... what would you say if He asked you "Why should I let you into my heaven?"

I've been nearly perfect. God will overlook the few mistakes in my life.I've always been very good. I tried to follow the 10 commandments.I haven't really been that bad. I never hurt anyone and God will overlook the things I've done wrong because He's a loving God.I cannot enter heaven on my own merit.

I don't know what I would say.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for answering my questions...

Now here's the good news that I promised. The good news is: Heaven is a completely FREE gift! All of your life you may have been under the impression that God is weighing your good deeds against your bad deeds and that in the end He will either welcome you into heaven or NOT based on the outcome. The good news is that our future does not have to hang in the balances depending on our performance. In a world full of constant pressure, this really should help to relieve some of the heat! The Bible tells us:... the GIFT of God is eternal life ... Romans 6:23 As we all know a genuine gift is completely free. That means you could never WORK for the gift of eternal life no more than you could work for a birthday gift or an anniversary gift, etc...

I want to stop here for just a minute and say something.
The fact that you're reading this is NOT an accident.
I believe that God has a lot more good news for you. Please don't stop now... Continue and find out WHY heaven is a free gift and find out how to receive it.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is Heaven free?

Here's what the Bible has to say about it:By grace you have been saved through faith, and that NOT OF YOURSELVES; it is a GIFT of God, NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8,9

There's that word again - GIFT.
It's clear that heaven is a gift of God.
But why can't we earn it?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Man is a sinner...

Unfortunately, even if we wanted to earn our place in heaven,
we couldn't because man is a sinner...The Bible tells us:

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

This rules out the possibility of us saving ourselves.
The only way we could ever earn our way to heaven... is if we could be completely PERFECT for all time. Unfortunately, the Bible tells us:

Whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. James 2:10

And I'm sure, if you're honest with yourself, you've sinned at least once in your life. It doesn't matter how large or small the sin was. Sin IS sin, and sin will keep you out of heaven. But don't lose heart! Continue reading to see the brighter side... remember heaven is a FREE gift..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

God is Merciful

Fortunately for us, God doesn't want to punish us because
He is merciful and full of love.

God is love... 1 John 4:8b

BUT, there is another absolute truth about God. He is just, therefore it's His obligation to punish SIN.

I will by no means clear the guilty... Exodus 34:7b

I know by now you're wondering...where's the good news in all this?
How can heaven be a free gift? How can I go to heaven?

If man's a sinner...

And he can't save himself...

And even though God loves us...

He must punish our sin...

Just hang on...the answer to our problem is just one click away...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's what Jesus is for!

God sent his Son into the world to remedy this problem.
To understand God's plan you must first understand who Jesus really is.The Bible tells us that Jesus is in fact GOD in the flesh...

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God...and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us...John 1:1,14

God entered time and space in the form of Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless perfect life. When He died on the cross, he took our place and actually paid the penalty that was intended for US! Then he did something that no one else has ever done. He arose from the dead and now He offers US the privilege of eternal life as a GIFT. The trick is receiving that gift.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Faith is the Answer

To receive this precious gift of eternal life you must have saving faith.
Saving faith is NOT just believing certain historical facts about Jesus' life.Saving faith is NOT even trusting God for all your needs (financial, physical, emotional, etc.)Saving faith IS trusting in Jesus Christ alone for SALVATION.
It means you're depending on Him alone, NOT on yourself, to get to heaven. This way, we don't get the credit for it, God does and rightly so.

Now the big question is... Do you want to receive this gift?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Would you like to receive this gift?

If you really want to receive God's gift of eternal life all you have to do is:

  • Transfer your trust from what you've been doing all your life to what Jesus has done for you already by his death on the cross. Receive the RESURRECTED and LIVING Christ as SAVIOR and LORD.
  • Repent of your sins. This means that you must be willing to turn from anything that is not pleasing to God. Eliminating sin from your life doesn't happen over night and in fact you'll never be perfect, but if you're genuinely willing to allow God to be Master and King, then He will change you over time.

Don't turn back now. God has brought you to this point and He's revealed His amazing plan to you. You should feel privileged and honored. He really loves YOU. All you have to do is reach out and take His gift of eternal life.

Now if this is really what you want...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's time to Pray...

God promises to save everyone who calls on his name.
He won't turn anyone away.For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10:10,13
Pray with me right now, right where you are. Don't delay.
You may never get this opportunity again...

Lord Jesus Christ, I confess that I'm a sinner and I do not deserve to go to heaven. But, I believe that you died on the cross and arose from the dead to pay the penalty of MY sins and that you purchased a place in heaven just for me. Please forgive me of my sins and become the Lord of my life. I repent of my sins and I'm trusting in YOU for my salvation. I accept YOUR gift of eternal life. Thank You. In Jesus Name. Amen.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you accepted God's Gift - Congratulations!

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes
in Me has everlasting life. John 6:47

Welcome to the family of God!

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become
children of God, even to those who believe in His name. John 1:12

Mark this day in your calendar. Your life will never be the same! There are a few things you should do in order to learn more about God.

    • You should read the Bible every day. The book of John is a good place to start. You should pray all the time. Talk to God like you would talk to a close friend. In fact, He is your best friend. Worship regularly in a local church. Fellowship with other Christians who will help you grow in the faith.
    • Tell others about your experience with Jesus Christ!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations!
