The Bible indicates that you can know for sure that you will spend eternity with God in Heaven. In fact, The Bible says: “These things I have written unto you…that ye may know that you have eternal life…” (1 John 5:13). Here’s how: The Bible says there are 5 things you need to know and personally affirm about eternal life:
4. Jesus Christ
The question you must now ask yourself is: “What is my trust and confidence in with regard to my standing before God?” If you believe that your standing with God depends upon the degree to which you keep or don’t keep God’s law, then you need to be converted! You need to make a decision to stop relying in any way on your own personal behavior in terms of your eternal standing before God, and you need to transfer that trust completely to what Jesus Christ has done to save you. In other words, it’s not what you must do that gets you into heaven, but rather what Jesus has done for you (and that alone) that gets you into heaven! If you would like to do this, you can go to God in prayer right now where you are. You can receive His gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ right now. The Bible says: “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:10, 13) If you want to receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, then call on Him, asking Him for this gift right now. Here’s a suggested prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ, I know I am a sinner and do not deserve eternal life. But I believe that you died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in heaven for me. Lord Jesus, come into my life; take control of my life; forgive my sins and save me. I want to turn from my sins and now I place my trust in you for my salvation. I accept the free gift of eternal life.
If that prayer is the sincere desire of your heart, look at what Jesus promises to those who trust in Him: “Truly, truly, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me hath everlasting life.” (John 6:47)
