If you died tonight, do you know for sure you would go to heaven?
This simple but powerful question has confounded many people for ages. But the answer can be a simple, confident “yes.”
The Bible says, “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the
Son will not see life” (John 3:36). That “Son,” is Jesus-God’s Son.
“Believes in” is simple. It means to trust-to put your faith in-Jesus as the only way to salvation.
If you recognize that you are a sinner, and cannot achieve eternal life on your own, pray a prayer something like this:
Dear God, I know I’m a sinner and do not deserve Your favor. But I also know that Your Son, Jesus Christ, came to die for my sins and He took the burden of my sin on Himself. So I thank you for Jesus, I confess my unrighteousness, and I accept You into my heart. Please count me among those who believe in the Son and therefore have eternal life.
God will honor the sincere prayer of a seeker. Read His Word-the Bible-to understand what you have done and how you now should live. Help is available from the church that sponsors this paper, or directly from FGBC World. We’d be delighted to help.
