There is a misconception in society that man has put together a formula God accepts that allows man to enter the kingdom of heaven. However, even a simple reading of the Bible reveals that there is no such formula. If we could do wonderful works around the church; if we could live morally righteous lives; if we could give lots of money; if we could spend two or three hours a day in prayer and reading our Bibles; if we could help the poor and feed the hungry; if we could somehow benefit those in need and one or some of these acts would allow us to enter into heaven when we die...ask yourself this question: "why would Jesus leave Heaven, come to earth and live here for 33 years, be rejected, be tortured, and die a horrible death by crucifixion for our sin, if we could pay for our sin by doing one or more of these other ways?" There is no other way but by the blood of the perfect Son of God, Jesus Christ.
Our Sin Problem
Sin became part of our human nature when Adam and Eve took and ate fruit, forbidden by God, from the tree in the center of the Garden of Eden. Sin is a trespass against the holiness and righteousness of God's character. Heaven is holy, righteous and perfect, a place where sin cannot enter. We take a shower or bath to clean off the dirt and smell on the outside of our body, but we cannot clean the filth and smell of sin on the inside of our body - only the blood of Jesus can accomplish that.
The Bible says...
For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whover believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
The Apostle Paul says in Romans 3:23, For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God...
But, here is an amazing thing the Bible says about God...
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 5:8
God Provides the Only Way
Jesus died on Calvary's Cross for you and your sin. All you need to do is tell God that you are a sinner, He already knows that, but you need to admit it. Ask God to forgive you of your sin. Ask God to come into your heart and save you.
Romans 10:10 tells it this way, For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
Then, if you ask Jesus into your heart and mean business with Jesus, you are SAVED! You have eternal life now and in heaven with the Lord...it never stops!
God's Assurance in His Word
And this is the testimony, God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; He who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1 John 5:11-13
