More important to living where you live, the question is where will you live for all eternity? The Bible provides us with God's road map to Heaven. The Bible says, "Narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it" (Matthew 7:14).
On another occasion, Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:16). Jesus is the way to Heaven and He gave these directions.
1. Realize you are a sinner. No matter where you are physically, everyone starts at the same place spiritually. All are sinners. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Man comes short of Heaven (the glory of God) because of sin!
2. Realize there is a penalty for your sins. Not only does sin keep you out of Heaven, but it also condemns you to hell. Romans 6:23 says,"For the wages of sin is death... Sin brings both physical and spiritual death. "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death (Revelations 20:14).
3. Realize Jesus paid the penalty. Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection provides a way for you to go to Heaven. "But God commandeth his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). Since Jesus was the only one who could pay for our sin, He is the only way to Heaven.
4. Repent of your sins and receive Jesus as your savior. The final part of Jesus' direction is to repent and receive Him (Acts 20:21). It says, "Repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ."
In order to go to Heaven from where you are, you must accept Christ by calling on Him in prayer. He tells us, in Romans 10:13, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Follow Christ's directions by praying in faith the following prayer or one similar to it, to receive Him now:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins, and take me to Heaven when I die. I believe you died and rose again for me. I am trusting You completely.
