Eternal Life In Heaven Was Provided Through Jesus’ Sacrifice and Resurrection
1 Peter 1:3,4- Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.
God in His Mercy sent Jesus Christ to be the sacrifice for our sins. He was placed in a tomb and three days later rose from the dead. Jesus’ resurrection gives a living hope that transcends this world, and its cares and problems by giving an inheritance, which gives something to look forward to in Heaven.
We Must Repent of our Sins, and Recognize Jesus as our Lord and Savior in order to Have Eternal life in Heaven
Acts 3:19- Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out…
Romans 10:9,10-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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
To “repent” means to have a change of mind, and direction. The Bible clearly states that in order for conversion (a spiritual change from sin to righteousness) to take place and our sins to be paid for we must repent. This repentance takes place with a heart of faith while recognizing Jesus Christ as our Lord –the master of our life-the payment of our sins.
Are you willing to recognize that you have broken God’s law and a sinner? Are you willing to understand that you cannot save yourself, and that Christ was offered as the payment of your sins? Are you willing to recognize Jesus as your Lord-pledging your allegiance to Him as your master repenting of your sins? If so-Why don’t you call upon God, and let Him know that you want eternal life right now through Jesus Christ?
If you sincerely called upon God asking Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior repenting of your sins you have claimed God’s promise of eternal life.
