Life Question?

Question #1: If you were to die right now do you know if you would go to heaven?
 
Question #2: If you were standing before Jesus Christ right now and He said,
"Why should I let you into my heaven?", what would you say?
 
If you are unsure of your answer to these Life Questions, then read the following.
 
God loves you...
John 3:16 - "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
."
 
Faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord is the only way.
Acts 4:12 - "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name
under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved
."
 
F.A.I.T.H. - Forsaken All I'll Trust Him
F - is for Forgiveness: Everyone has sinned and needs God's forgiveness.
Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
 
A - is for Available: God's forgiveness is available for all.
John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world..."
God's forgiveness is available but not automatic...
Matthew 7:21 - "Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven
;"
 
I - is for Impossible: According to the Bible, it is impossible to get to heaven on our own.
Ephesians 2:8&9 - "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is  the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast
."
 
T - is for Turn: If you were going down the road and someone asked you to turn,
what would he or she be asking you to do? (Change Direction)
Turn means Repent.  Turn away from sin and self.
Luke 13:3 - "except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
Turn to Jesus alone as your Savior and Lord:
John 14:6 - "I am the way, the truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.
"
Here is the Greatest News of All...
Romans 10:9&10 - "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.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
."
 
If you are willing to repent of your sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord...
 
H - is for Heaven: Heaven is a place where we will live with God forever.
John 14:3 - "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
Eternal Life begins with JESUS!
John 10:10 - "I am come that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly
."
H can also stand for How...
How can a person have God's forgiveness, eternal life, and heaven?
By trusting Jesus as your Savior and Lord...
 
Use this prayer as your own: "Dear God, I admit that I am a sinner
and need your forgiveness.  I believe that Jesus is your Son and that
He died on the cross for my sins and raised from the dead to give
life to all who would receive Him.  Forgive me for my wrong and I confess
and commit to live for Jesus as my Savior and Lord.  Thank you for
saving me.  In JESUS name. Amen
!"
