πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ How Sure Are You?

Would you like to have the knowledge, the assurance and the joy of sins forgiven? Would you like to be sure of heaven?

Well, the first step to heaven is to realize that you cannot get there by trying. You can’t walk there. You can’t climb there. You can’t fly there. Only God can take you there. Many try to earn heaven. They try to climb there on a ladder of good works. They talk about β€œadding another rung.” But look out for that good works ladder! It’s not anchored at the top and the higher you climb the farther you will fall.

God’s Word says that salvation is β€œthe gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph. 2:8,9). He is not going to have boasters in heaven β€” there are enough of them on earth and nobody likes them.

All of us should realize that even the best of us are not good enough for heaven, for β€œall have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23), but in this same statement the Apostle Paul declares that believers in Christ, who died for our sins, are β€œjustified freely by His [God’s] grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 3:24).

β€œTherefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:1).

So, friend, it is not by trying, or crying, or praying, or paying, or doing anything that you will reach heaven: it is only by believing. God says He loves sinners, and that Christ died for our sins. Will you believe this and trust Christ as your Savior? source
