"Our hope is in the Lord from this day forth and forever."  Psalm  131:3  

                                                                               A STEP OF FAITH 

In your personal opinion, what do you understand it takes for a person to get to Heaven and have eternal life?  Consider how the Bible answers this question.  It is a matter of FAITH.

F Is for FORGIVENESS

       Everyone has sinned and needs God's forgiveness.      "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

       God's forgiveness is in Jesus only.   "In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the                                                                                  riches of His grace."  Ephesians 1:7                     

A Is for AVAILABLE

       God's forgiveness is available for all.      "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotton Son, that whosoever believeth in                                                                                   Him should not perish but have everlasting life."  John 3:16

       God's forgiveness is available but not automatic.    "Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of                                                                                                     Heaven.  Matthew 7:21

I Is for IMPOSSIBLE

      According to the Bible, it is impossible to get to Heaven on our own.     "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.  Ephesians 2:8,9

      So how can a sinful person have eternal life and enter Heaven?

T Is for TURN

      If you were going down the road and someone asked you to turn, what would he or she be asking you to do?  (change direction) Turn means repent. Turn away from sin and self.    "Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."  Luke 13:3

      Turn to Jesus alone as your Savior and Lord.    "I am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but  by Me."                                                                                               John 14:6

      What happens if a person is willing to repent of their sins and confess Christ?

H Is for HEAVEN

      Heaven is a place where we will live with God forever. "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you                                                                                                      unto Myself; that where I am there ye may be also."  John 14:3

      Eternal life begins now with Jesus.      "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."                                                                              John 10:10

H  Can also stand for HOW...

    How can a person have God's forgiveness, eternal life and Heaven?  By trusting in Jesus as Savior and Lord.  Take the step of faith today.  Then tell a Christian friend or Pastor about the important step you have taken.  Grow in your faith and enjoy new friends in Christ by becoming part of His church and attending the Sunday School class a church has just for you.
