There is a common misconception that all religions lead to Heaven. In life, all roads do not lead to the same destination. So it is with Heaven. There is only one road that will take you to Heaven. That road is found in the Bible. Consider these things...
1. You are a sinner.
“All have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The Bible clearly states that everyone is a sinner. Sin is disobedience to God, such as murder, stealing, cursing, lying, cheating, hating, pride, rebellion….
2. The penalty for sin is spiritual death.
“The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23a). God is holy and, therefore, cannot fellowship with sinful mankind. Thus, it is our sin that separates us from God for eternity.
3. Jesus Christ paid the sin debt for the entire world on the cross.
“Christ died for our sins” (1Corinthians 15:3). Christ was the only one who could pay for our sin and satisfy the demands of God.
4. Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is God’s free gift to all mankind.
“The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23b).
5. Jesus Christ is the only way to have forgiveness from God.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). Jesus Christ is the only way to God the Father.
6. You must personally accept God’s free gift of salvation.
“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans10:13).
A gift is not yours unless you accept it!
