How to get to Heaven!
Maps show us how to move from one place to another. The scriptural map below is designed to show how a person might move from their destiny in sin to a life filled with the joy of the Lord and an eternity in heaven. Please read carefully the following truths from God’s Holy Word, the Bible, and then pray the simple prayer that is written. If you mean this in your heart and are ready for Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Master of your life, God has promised to forgive all your sin and restore the fellowship that He intended for all of mankind!
I. You must agree with God that you are a sinner and in need of His forgiveness.
Romans 3:23 “For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
II. You must believe that Jesus Christ died for you and because of your sin.
Romans 5:8 “But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
III. You must believe in your heart and confess with the mouth that Jesus Christ died as a substitute for you and that God has raised Jesus from the dead.
Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and 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.”
Man’s greatest stumbling block with this matter is it’s ease. God has said this:
“For by grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not works lest any man should boast,” Ephesians 2:8-9.
This salvation experience begins a process in the heart of women and men, whereby God changes the person to become in character and conduct like unto Jesus Christ. We are literally being formed into His image! Will you allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart and bring you to a place of faith and repentance of sin? Will you trust him right now?
Pray this simple prayer: Father, I do believe that Jesus died to pay my sin debt and that you have raised Him from the dead. I am now asking that you forgive me of my sin and that I want Jesus to come and live in me in the person of the Holy Spirit. I am sorry that my sin has violated Your law, Your love, and Your holiness. In Jesus’ name I ask this, Amen.
REMEMBER: Heaven’s Map is not designed simply to tell you how to move from earth to heaven, but to show you that God’s design is for you to be in a living and growing relationship with Him!
