Has anyone ever taken a bible and shown you how you can know for sure you're going to heaven?     May I?

This kind of certainty involves a number of important truths to understand. And it Begins with some really Bad News

     ALL HAVE SINNED  Romans 3:23

Sin is anything we think say do or don't do that transgresses God's law and everyone, except Jesus has sinned.

     That's bad news but the bad news gets worse


Death literally means separation.  Physical death is separation from the body and the spirit.  Spiritual death is separation from God and his goodness, kindness, love, joy and peace.   The Bible calls this Hell and we have all earned it by our sin.

     I think you would agree that's really bad news but remember there is good news as well.

Now, the part you've been waiting for:  

The good news

Perhaps you've heard of the word "gospel".  Gospel literally means good news.  

       The good news is that Jesus died on the cross in your place Romans 5:8    He stepped in to take the punishment for sin that you deserve and 3 days later Jesus rose from the Dead.   Good News?  How about Great news!

And then,  remember how the bad news Got worse?  The Good News gets better.

Jesus' death opened the way to Heaven for sinners and all that God requires is that you put your faith in Jesus' sacrifice on your behalf.   That's it!

Ephesians 2:8-9  

Faith means that we put our complete confidence and trust in him as our only hope in this life and the next.

That's it, by trusting in Christ and Christ alone you can be certain that when you pass from this life to the next you will spend an eternity with God.
