What if you Died Today
WHAT IF YOU DIED TODAY?
If you died today are you 100% sure that you would have a home in Heaven?
You can be if you…
1. Realize and acknowledge:
“…all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
Yes, you too have fallen short of Heaven because of your sin. You may be better than many others, but compared to Jesus, “…there is none that does good.” Romans 3:12
2. Realize and Acknowledge
There are two kinds of death: physical and spiritual. We inherited both types of death from Adam. Adam’s sin brought physical and spiritual death to all. So, because of sin, we must suffer a second death eternally in Hell, unless we find another way to pay for our sin. Revelation 21:8 tells of “…the lake of fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
3. Realize and Acknowledge
“Christ died for our sins.” 1 Corinthians 15:3
Jesus paid the entire price for you by His death on the cross. A holy and just God set the price on sin, and then, in love, paid the price for sin Himself in the person of Christ.
4. Realize and Acknowledge
“…the gift of God is eternal life through Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
He, Jesus, brought eternal life for all. Jesus own death freely gives eternal life. In fact, He promises that, “…whosoever comes to me I will in no wise cast out.”
We are saved from a second death by a living Savior! Christ is alive today! Romans 6:9 wonderfully says: “Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death has no dominion over Him.”
He has power and victory over death and sin and thereby offers the same to you, as a gift, not a reward.
5. Realize and Acknowledge
“For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
This is a promise. The “whosoever” is not a church member, or who is baptized or confirmed or takes communion, or does the best he/she can; but whosoever shall call on the Lord believing in Jesus. He died, was buried, and arose again so that you may believe as John 1:12 says, “But as many as received Him, to them gave He the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.”
So, here is how you can be 100% sure:
6. Confess and ask:
Lord Jesus, I believe You died, was buried and rose again to pay for my sins. I am sorry for my sins. Please be merciful to me a sinner and save me from Hell and give me a life worth living. Thank you, Lord, for saving me today.
