The Five Steps To Heaven
step 1 is to acknowledge that you have sinned.
Romans 3:10 says, "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"
Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
step 2 is to realize that there is a penalty for your sin.
Romans 6:23a says, "For the wages of sin [is] death;"
The word "death" means separation. The death referred to here means eternal seperation from God in the lake of fire as stated in Revelation 21:8.
Revelation 21:8 says, "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
step 3 is to acknowledge that Christ paid the penalty of sin for you.
Romans 5:8 says, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
step 4 is to acknowledge that Christ wants to give you the free gift of eternal life.
Romans 6:23b says, "…but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
step 5 is that you must believe in Christ, repent, and ask Him to be your Savior.
Romans 10:9-10 says, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:13 says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
As you think on these truths, will you right now ask Christ to come into your heart and life? Then, attend a good fundamental, Bible-believing church, publicly confess Christ as your Savior, and follow Him in Believer´s Baptism. For the Bible says in Romans 10:11, "Whosoever believeth in Him shall not be ashamed."
