How to Have a Place in Heaven...
Realize God loves you.
John 3:16 says,"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Regardless of age, race or background, God loves you and desires to have a relationship with you.
Realize everyone is a sinner.
The Bible explains in Romans 3:23,"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." No one is perfect. We have all broken God's commandments. This is called sin, and it separates us from God.
Realize sin has a price that must be paid.
Romans 6:23 tells us,"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The wage or payment for our sin is death, which according to the Bible is eternal separation from God in a place called Hell.
Realize Jesus died to pay the price for your sin.
Romans 5:8 says,"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." If you accept Christ, you do not have to pay the price of Hell. Jesus paid for your sins when He died on the cross.
Pray and ask Jesus to be your Savior.
Romans 10:13 promises,"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." If you pray to God, confess that you are a sinner, and ask Him to forgive your sins; He promises to save you and give you the free gift of eternal life.
