How to Be Saved !!!
Call upon God
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13
Dear friend, I'd like to ask you the most important question that you will ever hear in your life. That question is this: IF YOU DIEDTODAY, WOULD YOU GO TO HEAVEN?
If you could not answer that question with certainty, then I would like to ask you another question. Would you like to know for sure that you would go to heaven if you died today? If the answer is yes, then please listen very closely to what I am about to tell you.
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good, no not one." -Psalms 53:1-3
Jesus is the only way. In order to go to heaven, you must believe on him for salvation, which means you must call upon him to save you. He is as real as you and me. He lived about 2,000 years ago, and was crucified at Jerusalem around 30 A.D. 3 days later, he arose from the dead, and was seen at one time by over 500 people (see 1 Corinthians 15:6). He alone can save you. No one else can save.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." - John 14:6
Many people think that if they are just good enough, they'll go to heaven. They think that their good will outweigh their bad. As we can see from the previous scripture verse, there is none that doeth good. That means there is none righteous enough to go to heaven, no not one. All are sinners. They also think, "Why would a God of love send anyone to hell?" The answer is this: Because people are evil. What do you think? Do you think hell is meant for good, law abiding people? The Bible says that its meant for the lawless, for the disobedient, for profane, for murderers, adulterers, and sinners of all sorts.
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators (people who have sex before marriage), nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind (homosexuals), nor theives, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." - 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Heaven is meant for saints (people who have been forgiven). The only way to get there is through Jesus. To be saved, please pray to God something along these lines, "Lord Jesus, please forgive me of all my sins. Please save me."
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." - Romans 10:9
If you truly meant the above prayer, the Bible promises that God will forgive you, and he will give you eternal life! God loves you so much that he is willing to forgive any kind of sin you have ever done! The next step is to read the Bible everyday, pray everyday.
