Ever wonder what it takes to get to Heaven?

The Bible tells us that God loves us and wants for us to live with Him in Heaven. But Heaven is a perfect place and God can not allow sin into Heaven or there would be sickness, disease,and death in Heaven just like there is on earth. This is where God had a problem. He loves us but He hates our sin because it seperates us from Him. This sin must be paid for in order for us to be able to go to Heaven and live with God. So here is what God did.

He sent His Son, Jesus Christ to this earth to pay the debt that we owe for the sins that we have committed. The Bible tells us that Jesus was born of a virgin so He did not inherrit the sinful nature that we all have (This sinful nature is passed to us from our father). Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life so he was able to be a substitute for us on the cross to pay for our sins.
The Bible tells us that "The wages (payment) of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord." - Romans 6:23
The Bible tells us that if we accept the payment that Jesus made on the cross for our sins that we can go to Heaven when we die. Do you see the second part of the above verse. It states that "the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ". Eternal life is a gift from God to us. How do you get eternal life? Just like any other gift. You accept it. At Christmas time you get gifts. You don't work or pay for them, you just accept them from the person who gives them to you and open up the gift so that you can enjoy it. You can choose not to accept a gift and leave it under the tree if you want to or you can accept it. It is the same with eternal life. God offers it freely to you. You can accept it or tell God, "no God, I'm not interested". The choice is up to you.

Are you running from God?

You can't run from God. He is there where ever you go, but He will never force Himself on you. He is patiently waiting for you to stop running and ask Him to be a part of your life. He is willing to give you eternal life if you will just ask Him.

Spiritual Warfare

The Bible tells us that we are in a spiritual warfare. There are two sides fighting for your soul and your life. Satan does not want you to accept Christ as your personal saviour, so he will do what ever he can to stop you. Once you are a Christian Satan will try to stop you from ever telling anyone else how they can go to Heaven when they die. How your life turns out is up to you by the choices that you make. Every time you make a decision, it will please either God or Satan. Do you help your neighbor? Will you go to church this week? Will you turn in that money you found or keep it? Will you help your parents around the house? The choices are up to you.

When we are young, we believe that we will live forever and that nothing that we do can hurt us. Although we may not say that, it is usally how we live our lives. I remember when I was younger, that I did some things that put me in danger and didn't give it a second thought. I lost my little brother "Willie" when he was only 10 years old.
About 2 weeks before I graduated from High School, one of my friends that I had first met in Junior High (Middle School) got killed in a car accident. I think that these people dying woke me up to the fact that we are mortals and that I may have to be more careful about doing things. Remember that anything can happen to you at any time in your life. You don't have the promise that you will be alive tomorrow. If you don't know Jesus Christ as your own personal Savior, don't put it off any longer. Here is something that I have run across that I believe will help people to realize that we are only one breath away from eternity.

Dead at 17 by John Berrio

Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was overwhelmed by grief, and I expected to find sympathy.
I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called "Traffic Fatalities."
The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. "Special favor," I pleaded. "All the kids drive." When the 2:50 p.m. bell rang, I threw my books in the locker ... free until tomorrow morning! I ran to the parking lot, excited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss.

It doesn't matter how the accident happened. I was goofing off - going too fast, taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream.
Suddenly, I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me. I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn't feel anything. Hey, don't pull that sheet over my head. I can't be dead. I'm only 17. I've got a date tonight. I'm supposed to have a wonderful life ahead of me. I haven't lived yet. I can't be dead.

Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks came to identify me. Why did they have to see me like this? Why did I have to look at Mom's eyes when she faced the most terrible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenly looked very old. He told the man in charge, "Yes, he's our son."
The funeral was weird, I saw all my relatives and friends walk toward the casket. They looked at me with the saddest eyes I've ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched my hand and sobbed as they walked by.
Please, somebody - wake me up! Get me out of here. I can't bear to see Mom and Dad in such pain. My grandparents are so weak from grief they can barely walk. My brother and sister are like zombies. They move like robots. In a daze. Everybody. No one can believe this. I can't believe it, either.
Please, don't bury me! I'm not dead! I have a lot of living to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please don't put me in the ground! I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, I'll be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance. Please, God, I'm only 17.
