        Heaven and eternal life are a free gift from God. "...the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."  (Romans 6:23b - NIV) We cannot earn our way to Heaven and we do not deserve it.  "He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy..."  (Titus 3:5a - NIV)

        None of us is without fault but God tells us that we must be perfect to enter Heaven with Him. The Bible tells us about a worldwide problem called sin.  The consequence of this problem is our eternal separation from God and no personal relationship with Him.

        God is loving ("...God is love." 1 John 4:8b) and merciful and He does not want to punish us, but He is also just and He must punish our sin.  This situation creates a barrier or separation between man and God.

        But God gave us the only solution in the person of Jesus Christ who said: "...I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."  (John 14:6 - NIV)

        God's Word tells us that Jesus is both fully God and fully man at the same time. He came down from Heaven to earth to live with us. He was born as a human being, lived a perfect, sinless life, died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for all of our wrongs we have ever done and purchase a place in heaven for each one of us.

        Forgiveness and eternal life is available for all but it is not automatic."Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." (John 1:12 - NIV) Each person must have faith in Jesus Christ alone and trust only in Him for our eternal life.

        The Bible tells us that we can know for certain that we have Eternal Life."I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life." (1 John 5:13 - NIV)

        We receive this Free Gift through prayer. "...if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9 - NIV)

Talk to God right now.  Ask Jesus to be the Lord of your life today!
