Where Will You Go, When You Die?
All of us at some point will face death. Today you might be alive but nobody knows the time of his/her death except God.
Statistics reflect that over 153000 people die every single day. This means that more than 56 million people die every year.
The most important thing we must ask ourselves however is: Where will you go when you die?
Will you go to heaven – or will you go to hell? Or do you presume that you will just return to dust and seize to exist?
The Bible tell us that we are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:27). Therefore just as God is Spirit, we as humans also have a spirit. We are more than just flesh. But when our flesh dies, our spirit will still live.
Therefore when we die, our spirit will either go to heaven or go to hell and where we go depends on just one very important choice that we make in our life.
That simple choice is whether or not we believe and genuinely accept Jesus Christ as our personal Lord & Saviour.
Jesus said: “In My Father’s house there are many rooms… I go and prepare a place for you” (John 14:2) and then He says “I am the way, and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
Jesus also says that unless we are born again – we cannot enter the kingdom of God (John 3:3).
So if you would like to go to heaven when you die – you simply by faith accept & receive Jesus Christ into your life. You put your total trust in Him to be your Lord & Saviour.
Salvation is a free gift because Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross. The Bible says that we are saved by grace and not by our own works or personal merit (Ephesians 2:8,9).
DO YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN or A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST???
1. ACKNOWLEDGE: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:13).
You must acknowledge that you are a sinner and that you therefore need Jesus in your life.
2. REPENT: “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3), “Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19)
Repenting means: to change your mind; a sincere turning away, in heart, mind and action;
Therefore God wants you to repent of sinful values and of sinful living. God wants you to decide to
follow Him and to make Jesus the Lord of your life.
3. CONFESSION: “If we confess our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)
God is a forgiving God. God will forgive any sin that you have done because Jesus died for ALL your sins and to set you free from the bondage of all types of sin in your life.
4. BELIEVE: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
You must believe that ONLY Jesus can save you and restore your relationship with God. You must believe that Jesus is the ONLY way by which you can have everlasting life and escape from eternal separation from God. You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and resurrected from the grave.
“He came to His own, and His own did not receive him, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:11-12)
By faith, You must receive Jesus as Your Lord & Savior and therefore; you become a child of God; you become born again; you become a Christian; you restore your broken relationship with God
Why Not Make Your Eternal Decision NOW?
We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift received through FAITH in Christ.
PLEASE NOTE: You can choose to pray in your own words. This prayer is a sample prayer and it is only an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus. Salvation is by GRACE through FAITH or BELIEVING in Christ Jesus as your Lord & Saviour.
“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
I repent of all of my sins and I ask You to cleanse me Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I trust You as my Lord and Savior – Amen”
