Have you ever asked yourself this question? “Am I going to heaven?” If so, what was your answer?
Do you realize that there are only three ways that would guarantee you a ticket through the pearly gates? Let’s analyze them.
- The Age of Accountability - This way is only achieved by babies who were born and passed away before they have any awareness of God. There are babies everyday that go straight to heaven when they died because they could not possibly have understood who God is. Once a person has passed the age of accountability, then there are only two ways left.
- Obeying the 10 commandments PERFECTLY. You must not have sinned anytime, anyway, anyhow in thoughts, words and deed. Theoretically, it is possible if you were perfectly sinless from the time of birth. This method is impossible to achieve.
- Believe that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior and that His agony on the cross and spilled blood was for your salvation. (Acts 16:31)
So you see, the only way we can ever be saved is the third method. There is no escaping this truth. When you make Jesus your Lord and Savior, He will intervene in your life. He will lead you through a life of fullness and grace with His glory. Glorify Jesus and Jesus will glorify you.
You cannot have two masters but you must serve one. In Mark 8:38, Jesus said, “If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
There is no escaping God. He is very clear in His message when He said EVERY (no one is immune) knee shall bow to Jesus Christ in the final days. Folks, don’t get caught with your pants down when that time comes. The scariest part of it is, we don’t know when it is going to happen. So with this knowledge, it only makes sense to do it NOW, TODAY! In 2 Corinthians 6:2, Paul said “For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.”
What are you waiting for?
