Am I Going to
Heaven?
What Must I Do To Be Saved?

This is the age old question!  In the days of The Old Testament in the
Bible people looked forward to the Messiah, Jesus, coming to earth as
predicted my many prophets. Then two thousand years ago their
predictions were fulfilled!

God sent his only Son to be born of a virgin, live a sin free life, then die
on a cross in order for us to be saved from sin.

All we have to do to be saved is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and
we are now sin free and have eternal life.  It is that simple!
In the book of Acts Paul and Silas were jailed by the Romans because the people were complaining that they were
casting out demons in the name of Jesus Christ.   So when midnight came, and after much prayer by Paul and Silas
there was a huge earthquake and all their shackles broke loose and the prison doors opened up and the Roman guard
was about to fall on his sword when Paul cried out, "Do not harm yourself because we are all here!"  And the guard
fell down on his knees trembling and said,
"What must I do to be saved?  And they said Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ and thou shalt be saved and thine house"
.  This is found in the Bible in the book of Acts in Chapter 16.   
Four Simple Steps to Salvation

I would like to share with you how to have Jesus come into your life so that you will know
you are a child of God and are going to heaven.   It is very simple and you can find peace in
your life by following these four simple steps and then praying.

You will find a Bible verse next to each step and if you go to
www.godlife.com you can find
daily or weekly steps in following Christ.  You can also go online to read or listen to the
bible at
www.godlife.com/bible/

Here are the Simple Steps

1. God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.  John 3:16 “For God so loved the
world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish
but have everlasting life”.

2. First we must admit we are sinners.   Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and come short
of the glory of God.”   

3. Then we must confess our sins and then turn from them.  Jesus Christ is the only
provision for man’s sin and to know God.  John 14:6 “Jesus said, I am the way and the
truth and the life and no man comes to the Father (God) but by me”.

4. Now you can say a simple prayer to accept Jesus as your savior, so please pray now,
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness.  I believe you died
for my sins and rose from the dead.  I trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior.  Please
guide my life and help me to do your will.  I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.”

Now, if you have followed these four steps and prayed the above prayer you are a born
again Christian and now have the Holy Spirit in your life to guide and direct you.
Praise God…you now belong to Him!  

Remember, you are not saved by good works…it is a gift from Jesus and is done by faith.  I
am here for you each step of the way and I’d like to encourage you to write back and ask
any questions or ask for prayer.

In the Bible in the Book of John Chapter 14, when Thomas was asking
Jesus the way of salvation, Jesus said to him,
"I am the way, the truth
and the life; and no man comes to the Father except by me".

Often times you will hear people saying "There are many ways to God".  
They believe they can get to God by praying to Budda, Allah,  Krishna and
others!  But the above verse tells us that there is only one way to God and
that is through His Son Jesus Christ.
In the book of John Chapter 3 a man named Nicodemas, a ruler of the Jews,
came to Jesus by night and asked him "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher
come from God, because no man can do these miracles except that God be
with them".  And Jesus answered unto him and said,
"Unless a man be born
again he cannot see the Kingdom of God."

And Nicodemas said to him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he
enter into the mother's womb a second time and be born?"  And Jesus said to
him,
"Except a man be born of the water and of the Spirit he cannot
enter the Kingdom of God!"

When talking of the Spirit He is referring to the Holy Spirit who enters a
person's life the moment they accept Jesus as their Savior.
