NO ONE DESERVES TO GO TO HEAVENRomans 3:10-12, 23 - "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that does good, no, not one....all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."
BUT GOD LOVED US EVEN WHILE WE WERE NOTHING BUT SINNERS
Romans 5:8-9 - "But God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him."
1 Corinthians 15:1, 3-4 - "...I declare unto you the Gospel (the message, when believed, that has the power of God to save you - Rom. 1:16)...that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures!"
GOD OFFERS SALVATION THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRISTRomans 6:20-23 - "For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness. What fruit had you then in those things whereof you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUSRomans 10:8-13 - "...The Word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart: that is, the Word of faith, which we preach; that if you will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and you believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, Whosoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
JESUS BECAME LIKE US SO WE COULD BECOME LIKE HIM2 Corinthians 5:20-21 - "Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For He hath made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."
1 John 3:2 - "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is."
Salvation is by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ - PERIOD!
