How to go to Heaven?

Home | Blog – New | How to go to Heaven?

Why is heaven appealing to so many people? Why do those who claim to not be religious still hold beliefs about heaven? Our culture doesn’t know much about heaven, and yet it maintains a positive attitude about it.

Why do most people want to go to heaven? Because God created each of us with an internal sense there’s more beyond this life. We are designed for an eternal life and it begins the moment we die. Some people try to ignore it, while others reject it—atheists publicly oppose it. Even still, there’s a feeling within all of us that keeps coming back to heaven. An Old Testament author said God “has planted eternity in the human heart” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

How do you go to heaven? The answer is simple but sobering. You have to be perfect. Not mostly perfect, but absolutely perfect. This means you can’t have a bad day or a moment of weakness where you give into temptation. Ever.

The reason is God lives in heaven and He is absolutely pure and holy. We can’t be in His presence unless we are pure as well. Just one sin is enough to prevent us from entering heaven. The Bible says, “No one is righteous—not even one” (Romans 3:10).

That’s the bad news, but here’s the good news: With Jesus, you don’t have to be perfect. God sent His Son to our world to take away our sins. Jesus was perfect and never sinned, but He took all of our sins to the cross. His death was the judgment we deserve. The Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

Jesus made a way for you to be pure and spend eternity in heaven. You only have to accept God’s gift. Ask Jesus to come into your life, turn away from your sins, and trust He is the only way to heaven. By Billy Graham

 

Are you ready to receive Jesus and guarantee your eternity will be spent with Him in heaven?
