The Ten Commandments

Good Works

Some believe that the path to heaven is a cosmic scale.

Enough good works, like acts of human kindness or charity, can outweigh the bad we have done in our lives, right?


God s way to heaven

To some people, there might be degrees of sin, from slight to severe.

But in God’s eyes, a sin . . .

is a sin.

You see:

God sees:

I know you (God) get no pleasure from wickedness and cannot tolerate the slightest sin.

Psalm 5:4 (Living)


God s way to heaven

Even if you are able to fulfill most of God’s Laws

but falter in one, God’s Word says you are still

guilty of breaking all!

For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles

at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.

James 2:10

just one point

God s way to heaven

Of all the world’s religions, how do you know which is the right one?

Some believe that after you die, you have to wait in a place of cleansingbefore you can enter Heaven.

Others think that reincarnation is the cleansing path.

What if you were reborn a snail?

Edward Cole in ‘The Bucket List’ asks, ‘What would a snail have to do to move up? Lay down a perfect trail of slime?’

You get no guarantees from religion.

So many people today are sincere about what they believe regarding Heaven.

What if they are sincerely wrong?

What if YOU are sincerely wrong?

How can you be sure?

God s way to heaven

God’s Word makes it clear that none of these things can give us eternal life.

Not good works

Not the Ten Commandments

Not Religion

Not just Sincerity.

So what do we have to do to get eternal life?

There are . . .

FOUR TRUTHS

to understand

about

ETERNAL LIFE

Click here to continue.


God s way to heaven

1

GOD’S LOVE AND PLAN

God loves you and wants to give you eternal life.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

eternal life


God s way to heaven

God’s love is so great that he gave Jesus, his one and only son, to die for us so that we can have eternal life.

Do you have a son or daughter? Can you imagine giving him or her up for the life of another?

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

eternal life


God s way to heaven

Now, God’s plan didn’t just end with giving us eternal life. He wants our lives to be exciting and full of meaning.

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 10:10b

But, what keeps us from experiencing the full life God intends?

MAN’S PROBLEM

Our problem lies in our sinfulness.

God is holy and cannot tolerate sin.


God s way to heaven

God created humanity to be with him and to enjoy his presence.

Only because man willfully disobeyed him did sin enter the world and separate us from God.


God s way to heaven

all

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23

God’s Word tells us that all of us have sinned.

Our sinful desires and thoughts put us in no position to please God, because God hates sin.


God s way to heaven

death

What is the cost of sin?

The wages of sin is death.

Romans 6:23

It’s a penalty we cannot escape.


God s way to heaven

GOD

sin

death


God s way to heaven

In God’s word ‘Death’ denotes a separation from something. In this instance it means a separation from God.

GOD

sin

death


God s way to heaven

What if we take one of these roses and put it in water?

Is it alive, or dead?

Give it more time, and it will look like this.

A rose cut off from its plant is dead because it’s apart from its life source.

We are like that rose, because sin cuts us off from God.


God s way to heaven

Based on this list, there are no ‘safe’ sins.

GOD

But the ultimate consequence of sin is a fate which God’s Word calls “the second death”

sin

all liars

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic, the idolaters, and all liars – their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

Romans 6:23

death

second death

death


God s way to heaven

Is there any hope for mankind? How can we bridge this gap?

Even though we deserve death, God has given us a way out.

God s way to heaven

Jesus Christ is the only answer to humanity’s problem.

GOD’S SOLUTION

Jesus answered, “I am theway and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

He said that he is the way – not a way, but THE way.


God s way to heaven

He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.

Romans 6:23


God s way to heaven

Jesus Christ paid the penalty for sin on the cross.

GOD

sin

Through

him,

the gap is finally bridged.

eternal life

death

second death


God s way to heaven

When he died, he didn’t stay dead. He rose after three days. This proves that he was the powerful Son of God.

What guarantee do we have that we are on the right track? That Jesus is the way?

raised on the third day

he appeared to more

than 500

shown to be the Son of God

“... he was buried, ... he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…. After that, he appeared to more than 500 of the brothers at the same time….

1 Corinthians 15:4-6

He was shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23

MAN’S

RESPONSE

Just knowing these truths is not enough. We need to respond personally to God’s offer of salvation through Jesus Christ.

How?

Click here to continue.


God s way to heaven

God’s Word says that salvation is a gift of God and not a result of human works. Not by religion or by sincerity or by obeying laws – it is available only by God’s grace.

It is something we do not deserve and cannot earn.

It is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the giftof God – not by works, so that no one can boast.

Ephesians 2:8-9

not by works


God s way to heaven

How do you respond to this gift?

GOD

sin

faith

death

second

death


God s way to heaven

We must respond in faith.

Faith simply means believing God’s Word and that he will do exactly as he said he would.

This includes the need to acknowledge our sins before him, because true faith involves turning away from what displeases him.

It means surrendering our lives to God.


God s way to heaven

Jesus said,

I will come in to him.

If you and I ask him to come into our lives, he will give us eternal life.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him.

Revelation 3:20


God s way to heaven

You can receive Christ right now by simply going to God in prayer. Just talk to him. You might not know the words to say, but he looks deep into your heart to see what you are trying to tell him.

You can pray something like this.

Lord Jesus, I am sorry for my sins. Thank you for dying for me on the cross. With your help, I will turn away from my sins. Today I am putting my trust in you as my Lord and Savior and I receive you into my heart. Thank you for forgiving my sins and coming into my life. I accept your free gift of eternal life. Thank you that one day I will be with you in heaven. From this day on, I will follow and obey you. Amen.

God s way to heaven

If you prayed that prayer, congratulations. What’s happened to you?

To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

John 1:12


God s way to heaven

he has given us eternal life,

Whoever has the Son has life;

This is what God has testified: he has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life. I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know you have eternal life.

1 John 5:11-13

Because you have accepted Jesus the Son of God, God’s word declares that you have eternal life.


God s way to heaven
