Genuine offer: How to get eternal life for
How can I get eternal life and go to Heaven?
Did you know it is possible to know whether you have everlasting life? Did you know that, according to the Bible, if you repent of your sins (feel regret or remorse for them) and receive Jesus Christ into your life as Lord and Savior, you will be saved from eternal punishment in Hell when you die?
Don't you think that is wonderful news?
Would you jump at the opportunity to accept a genuine offer on how to gain eternal life? If so, the Bible has some good news for you. When it comes to eternal life, God makes no distinction between the famous and the unknown, the rich and the poor, the unselfish hero and the repentant murderer.
It is not for us to know the hearts of others. But there is an indication that Death Row murderer Karla Faye Tucker gave her life to Christ before she was executed in February 1998. There is no indication that German dictator Adolf Hitler did. There is an indication that cowboy Roy Rogers and airplane pioneers the Wright brothers did, but not that revolutionaries Joseph Stalin or Karl Marx did. But we cannot be certain.
People will not go to Heaven because of their good deeds, nor to Hell because of their sins. And this is a good thing, because if people went to Hell because of their sins, everyone would go there. So God has made a way of escape for us.
How to be born again
How do people become “saved” and “born again” Christians? How can you receive eternal life so that you will be sure to go to be with God when you die? A widely distributed Christian tract says the following is what the Bible requires.
You can be joyously “saved” and “born again” and receive eternal life right NOW, as millions of people worldwide have, when you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior. Born-again Christians overwhelmingly look at their salvation as the most exciting event in their lives.
Can you genuinely say a prayer like the following (the exact words are not essential)? If you are sincere, God will immediately save you and give you everlasting life.
A guide to what to pray:
“Dear Father in Heaven, I realize that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins [wrongdoings]. I am willing to turn from my sins and lead the life you want me to lead. I now ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart and I receive Him into my life as my personal Savior. I am willing, by God's grace, to follow and obey Christ as the Lord of my life. Please forgive me for my sins and save me”
Would you like to show your faith in Jesus right now? Start by letting someone (another Christian) know you are saved. (Or even just let us know if you are not sure whether anyone close to you is a born-again Christian). Then …
Get a Bible and read it every day to get to know Jesus Christ better.
As a born-again Christian you will now miss out on the terror of what the Bible describes as the alternative to spending eternity in Heaven — the everlasting fiery torment of Hell.
