What do you understand it takes for a person to go to heaven? Consider how the Bible answers this question. Becoming a Christian is a matter of FAITH.

F is for FORGIVENESS
We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God's forgiveness. -- Ephesians 1:7a
". . .the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace."

A is for AVAILABLE
Forgiveness is available. It is: Available for All. -- John 3:16 "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."
But Not Automatic. -- Matthew 7:21a
"Not everyone who says to me, `Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven,"

I is for IMPOSSIBLE
It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven. Because of who He is: God is loving and just. His judgment is against sin. -- James 2:13a ". . . because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful."
Because of who we are: Every person is a sinner. -- Romans 3:23 ". . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"
But how can a sinful person enter heaven, when God allows no sin?

T is for TURN
Turn means repent. Turn from something -- sin and self. -- Luke 13:3b ". . . But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
Turn to someone; trust Christ only. -- Romans 10:9
"That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

H is for HEAVEN
Heaven is eternal life. Here -- John 10:10b "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
Hereafter. -- John 14:3 "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am."

It is as easy as A-B-C

Admit to God that you are a sinner and that you are turning away from those things;

Believe in Jesus by thanking Him for dyingon a cross and rising from the dead for your sins;

Commit yourself to Jesus through prayer by asking him to com into your life as your SAVIOR and BOSS!
