What if I died right now?
If you died right now would you go to Heaven? Here’s how you can be 100 percent sure.
STEP 1 – Admit that you are a sinner.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
Everyone, including you, has fallen short of Heaven because of our individual sin.
STEP 2 – Understand that your sin separates you from God.
For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
The penalty for our sins is death, separation from God for eternity in a literal burning Hell.
STEP 3 – Believe Christ died for your sins.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
God so loved you that he sent his sinless son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place on the cross, paying the entire penalty for your sin.
STEP 4 – Understand that eternal life is not earned, but is received by faith.
The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).
Forgiveness of sins and assurance of Heaven cannot be earned by good works or religion.
Trusting in works and religion will send you to Hell.
Salvation is a gift – the receiver cannot pay for it.
STEP 5 – Invite Christ to be your personal saviour by prayer.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13).
Only faith in Jesus Christ can save you from your sin. “Whosoever” means you.
Right now is the best time to call on Christ for salvation.
You have just read the five steps to achieve total assurance in your life.
The following short prayer may help you to make a definite act of commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ:
Lord Jesus. It is true that I am a sinner, and that I need your forgiveness. I believe that you died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin and that you rose from the dead. I turn from my sin and ask you to live in my life by faith as my Saviour and my Lord. Amen.
