What Everyone Should Know

We are all sinners. Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”

We will all die because of our sin. Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death……”

No one can make up for their sin with good works. Nothing we do will earn our way to heaven – not church membership, not baptism, not good works, NOTHING! Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye
saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

There is only one way to heaven – turning from our sin (repentance) and putting our faith in Jesus Christ. John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

You are correct if you realize this is a very narrow way to heaven. In fact, the Bible agrees with you. Matthew 7:14 “…Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” The only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ – faith in His death on the cross, His burial and His resurrection from the dead! Most of us know John 3:16, but most do not know John 3:18 which says “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

The evidence that someone is truly a Christian is a dramatically changed life - not a perfect life, but a life that is dedicated to Jesus Christ. II Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” I John 2:3-4 “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
