What should i do to go to heaven?
A: Dear Angela,
We are very happy to hear from you. The Bible is filled with many precious promises that teach us about God’s love and His plan for us to be saved. Here are a few:
NIV - John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
BBE - 1 John 1:9 "If we say openly that we have done wrong, he (God) is upright and true to his word, giving us forgiveness of sins and making us clean from all evil."
RSV - John 14:1-3 "Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also."
RSV - Acts 16:31 "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household."
God loves every single one of us with all of His heart and He loves you too Angela. He wants you to spend eternity with Him.
Here are 3 simple steps to receiving the gift of salvation, they follow the first three letters of the alphabet.
A-Admit that you are a sinner.
B-Believe in Jesus.
C-Confess your sins.
We need to admit that we are sinners and cannot save ourselves by our works. Secondly we have to believe in God and that He sent his only Son Jesus to die for our sins on the cross. Thirdly we need to confess our sins to Jesus asking Him to forgive us. If we do this He will come into our hearts and help us stop doing wrong and do right.
