Would you carefully read the following verse that explain from God’s Word how you can know for sure that you have eternal life?
1. RECOGNIZE YOUR CONDITION–Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. No matter how much good we do, we still fall short.
2. REALIZE THE PENALTY FOR SIN–Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” Just as there are wages for good, there is punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
3. BELIEVE CHRIST DIED FOR YOU–Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Christ’s great love for us was shown when He died on the cross to pay our debt.
4. TRUST CHRIST ALONE AS YOUR SAVIOUR–Romans 6:23 says, “…but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him in faith.
Let us help you word a prayer. (Realize that it’s not mere words that save you, but your faith in Jesus Christ.)
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. Please forgive me for my sin. Jesus, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I am trusting you, and you alone to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me, Jesus. Amen.”
