Rest in peace is a phrase we hear all the time when someone dies, but how do you know for sure you will get to rest in peace when you take your final breath?
We will all die at some point. Most people believe that if they are a good person, or do good things for others here on earth that their actions will be enough to make it to heaven and rest in peace. Unfortunately no one is good enough to go to heaven, no matter how nice or how many good things they might do. God says that “all men have sinned and have missed the shining-greatness of God” (Romans 3:23).
It doesn’t matter if we have committed “small” sins like lying, stealing, and cheating, or “great” sins like murder—we are all guilty, condemned sinners. If we die before our sins are forgiven, we will be separated from God forever, and will never “rest in peace.”
There is good news, though! God knew we would sin, and because he loves us so much he sent His son Jesus—who was perfectly sinless—to suffer the penalty of sin in our place. He died on the cross to pay for all our sins, great and small, so we could be forgiven, saved, and spend eternity with Him in heaven.
God made you, loves you, and has a plan for your life no matter how many mistakes you’ve made. Ask Him to forgive you of your sins, trust Him to be your Saviour, and let him be the Lord of your life. He wants to start a personal relationship with you so He can help you in your life right now.
You can start that new life with him by recognizing that you need the salvation offered by Jesus. Acknowledge that He died for you and rose again, paying the price you could never pay. God’s forgiveness is not based on your actions, but His actions of dying and paying for your sin’s penalty. Trust Him—and Him alone—to take you to heaven when you die. You might want to express your heart’s desire in a prayer like this:
“God, thank you for sending Jesus to pay the price for all my sins, I trust the sacrifice He made for me. I ask you to forgive me and wash me clean of my sins. Come into my life and save me, making me a new person in You.”
If you have put your trust in Jesus, God has forgiven you, saved you, and you’re now His child forever! You will now have the peace of knowing your sins are forgiven and will “rest in peace” for eternity because you get to spend it with God.
Get a Bible and start reading and learning about Him. Get into a local church with others who can help you know more about His love for you. You can also pray to Him anytime, anywhere, about anything because He loves and cares for you!
