Do you ever wonder what is required to spend eternity in heaven with God after you die? It is simple really. You must recognize that you are a sinner. Confess your sins to God. Accept by faith Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior.
The Bible gives some additional steps to take that go along with the requirements stated above. The first is found in John 3:5, which says, “Jesus answered, truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
The next step is found in John 3:16. This is a verse well-known by a lot people but the important point here is that it lies in it’s wording. It says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” Whoever believes in Him is the key part.
Finally, Jesus gives us direction on how to come to the Father (God). Jesus says in John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.” Here you must understand that it is important to have a relationship with Jesus. That relationship with Jesus translates into your being accepted by God for all eternity.
There you have it. It’s not complicated, burdensome or tiring. If anything, it’s a joy untold. Step out and accept Jesus today. You’ll be glad you did.
