By accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, you can be assured that heaven will be your eternal home. If you simply and sincerely follow the steps below, your eternal destiny will be settled.
1. ADMIT YOU ARE A SINNER AND REPENT. You can’t get to heaven just because you think you are a good person. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23). That’s why God sacrificed Jesus, His only Son, to die for our sins. Jesus took the punishment of death that we all deserved.
2. BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHIST DIED FOR YOU. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).
3. ASK JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR HEART AND TO TAKE CONTROL OF
YOUR LIFE. “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).
HERE IS A SAMPLE PRAYER YOU CAN PRAY: “Lord Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner in need of a Saviour. I believe that you are the Son of God and that you died for my sins. Please forgive me for all my sins, and come into my heart. Now, take control of my life, and help me live for You.”
If you meant that prayer with all your heart, then you have just become a born-again Christian! Now, you can be confident you will live forever in heaven with God after your time on earth is over.
