1. Recognize you condition
“For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.” Romans 3:23
No one is good enough to go to Heaven on his own merit. Regardless of our effort, we will always fall short of God’s perfect standard.
2. Realize the penalty for sin
“For the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23
Just as there is a payment for good, there is eternal punishment for wrong. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.
3. Believe that Christ Died for you
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
4. Trust Christ alone as your Savior.
“But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus on the cross and offered freely to all those who call upon Him in faith.
