If you were standing at the gate of Heaven and God were to ask you…
“Why should I let you in?”
What would you tell him?
“Well I think I lived a pretty good life.”
“But what about all the wrong things you did?”
“Oh, those. Well, I tried my best, didn’t I?”
“What about the time…”
“I know! I know! Don’t remind me.”
“Well, maybe I didn’t always try my best, but I was sincere!”
“Sincere? What is sincerity worth?”
“You can be sincerely wrong, can’t you?”
“So sincerity really isn’t the issue. Let’s get back to the question at hand.”
“Why should I let you in?”
“Well, I went to church every Sunday of my life through snow and sleet and rain…”
“Doesn’t all that effort count for something?”
“I’m sorry, but that’s not good enough.”
“Wait a minute!”
“What must I do to be saved?”
“What must I do to be…”
“What’s this? A Bible?”
“Wow! Look at this!”
“What must I do to be saved? … Believe in the Lord Jesus, and You will be saved. (Acts 16:30,31)”
You see, God loves you and really wants to have a relationship with you.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)”
But our problem is … sin separates us from God’s love.
“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. (Isaiah 59:2)”
“Jesus Christ came to free us from sin, and to bring us into a right relationship with God the Father by giving up his life on the cross for our sins and rising again.”
“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God (1 Peter 3:16)”
So to get into heaven, we simply need to trust Jesus Christ as our personal savior, depending on Him alone for salvation.
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31)”
“Lord, I believe!”
“Now what would you say if you were standing at Heaven’s gate?”
