PLAN OF SALVATION

What do you understand it takes for a person to go to Heaven?

Consider how the Bible answers this question: It's a matter FAITH

F is for FORGIVENESS

We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God's forgiveness.---Read Ephesians 1:7a

A is for AVAILABLE

Forgiveness is available. It is ---

  * Available for all ----Read John 3:16

  * But not automatic ---Read Matthew 7:21a

I is for IMPOSSIBLE

It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven.

  * Because of who He is:

    God is loving and just.

    His judgment is against sin ---Read James 2:13a

  * Because of who we are:

    Every person is a sinner ---Read Romans 3:23

But how can a sinful person enter heaven, when God allows no sin?

T is for TURN

Turn means to repent.

  * Turn from something ---sin and self ---Read Luke 13:3b

  * Turn to Someone; trust Christ only ---Read Romans 10:9

H is for HEAVEN

Heaven is eternal life.

  * Here ---Read John 10:10

  * Hereafter ---Read John 14:3

How can a person have God's forgiveness, heaven and eternal ife, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord? By trusting in Christ and asking Him for forgiveness. Take the step of faith described by another meaning of FAITH: Forsaking All I Trust Him.

PRAYER:

 Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and have displeased You in many ways. I believe You died for my sin and only through faith in Your death and resurrection can I be forgiven. I want to turn from my sin and ask You to come into my life as Savior and Lord. Thank You, Lord Jesus for saving me. Amen
