What are we looking for?
People seek many different paths to heaven. Some think, “I am doing my best… surely God will let me into heaven.” Others look to various religious means: the Ten Commandments, church membership, baptism, confirmation, doing good things, etc. But how can any of these aspects of religion really ensure that one goes to heaven?
In 1 John 5:13, the writer declares, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
The Bible explains that “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him ” (John 3:36). Paul preached both to Jews and Gentiles “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21).
How then may a person seek the Lord?
1. Acknowledge that you are a sinner who needs to be saved. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). No one is able to save themselves; “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
2. Believe that God has provided for your salvation through Jesus Christ. “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” (John 3:16).
3. Repent of (turn from) your sin and call upon God. “The Lord… is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9). Ask God for salvation now! “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him
