Are You Going to Heaven?

Our sin separates us from God. Romans 6:23 explains, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”(NIV). But God has provided a remedy for this separation caused by the effects of sin.

“God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” (2 Corinthians 5:21, NLT).

Because of his great love for us, Jesus took the punishment we fully deserve by voluntarily dying on a cross for us. God the Father poured out his wrath toward sin on God the Son. Jesus became the perfect sacrifice for our sins. He became our substitute.

“God… so much wants us not to go to Hell that he paid a horrible price on the cross so that we wouldn’t have to” Randy Alcorn, Heaven
When Jesus was on the cross, he said, “It is finished”(John 19:30). The Greek word translated “it is finished” was normally written across certificates of debt when they were canceled. It meant “paid in full”.

Three days after his death, Jesus Christ arose from the grave, just like he said he would do.  He then blazed a new path to Heaven, opening the way for all of those who would trust in him, to follow.

Jesus Christ paid in full our debt of sin and now God does not have to judge us as our sin deserves.

As believers in Christ we are welcomed into God’s home, Heaven.
So what must we do to go to Heaven?
