Eternity– infinite time; duration without beginning or end.-dictionary.com
Life’s most pressing question is, ‘Where will I spend eternity?’ God’s Word, the Bible, has the answer. Eternity is not a guessing game. You can know.
1. Know that you are a sinner. Romans 3:10 says, “There is none righteous, no not one.”
2. Know that there is a penalty for sin. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” This means death in Hell, for eternity.
3. Know that Jesus Christ died in your place to pay the penalty for you. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he (God) hath made him (Jesus Christ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” Also see Romans 5:8 and Romans 6:23
4. Know and believe that Jesus Christ died and then rose again the third day, as He said He would. And He did this for you. 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.”
5. Call out to God and ask Him to forgive you and save you. By faith receive the free gift of eternity in Heaven provided by God’s Son Jesus Christ. Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” And I Timothy 4:10 says, “…we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.”
I John 5:13 states “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.”
