When you die, you won’t cease to exist. You will spend eternity somewhere. Heaven is real, but so is Hell. People don't like to talk about Hell - or think about it. But it's real. And we need to talk about it; everyone's eternity depends on it.
Simply put, Heaven is for those who have received forgiveness from God for their wrongs. Hell is for those who have not.
God is a good, good Father. He wants you to have a relationship and an eternity with Him where all things are made right.
How do you get forgiveness from God?
The only way to receive forgiveness for your sins is asking Jesus Christ. Jesus is the son of the one true God. He gave his life and died on the cross as a penalty for our wrongs. Jesus paid the price for us that results in forgiveness for our sins from God.
But forgiveness doesn’t happen automatically. You have to accept Jesus as savior of your life.
How do you accept Jesus as your savior?
You can accept Jesus as your savior right now by praying the following prayer. (Say it out loud, embracing every word with your heart.)
Prayer to be saved
God, I am sorry for the wrongs I have committed. Please forgive me. Jesus, you are the son of God. Thank you for paying the penalty for my sins through your death on the cross. I believe you rose from the dead and are in Heaven. I accept you as my savior and Lord. Jesus, I invite you to come into my life now.
If you prayed that sincerely, you have been forgiven, and you are restored to a right relationship with God. It is through this relationship that you will go to Heaven for all of eternity.
