DO YOU WANNA LIVE FOREVER? (Information courtesy of http://www.dctalk.net/heaven.php)

Read below. It will only take a few minutes. The reward is eternal life.


God had a plan when He created the world in which we live. He also had a plan when He made YOU. The most wonderful experience that can happen to you is to discover and participate in God's plan for your life. Now STOP! Don't think this is a bunch of rules and regulations. IT IS NOT! It is a FREE gift! This Great Discovery begins when you realize GOD loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.

1. GOD LOVES YOU!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him will not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16



2. GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.

The Bible demonstrates the fact that God loves you and wants you to enjoy the abundant life.

I have come that they might have life, and that they might have life more abundantly. John 10:10.



3. WHY ARE MOST PEOPLE NOT EXPERIENCING GOD'S LOVE AND LIVING THE ABUNDANT LIFE?

Because...Man is a sinner and sin has separated him from God.

But your sins have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you... Isaiah 59:2

God did not make man to love and obey Him automatically; but gave him a will and freedom of choice. Man chooses to disobey God and go his own self-willed, sinful way; that is why bad things happen every day. Every one of us, you and me, included has chosen to disobey God in many ways...

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23

Sin is missing the mark of perfection, or doing something bad, and results in spiritual death.

For the wages of sin is death but The gift of God is eternal life. Romans 6:23



4. MAN'S OWN EFFORTS CANNOT REPAIR THE DAMAGE CREATED BY SIN.

Man has attempted to bridge the gulf which separates himself from God by doing good works, living moral lives, devising philosophies, being religious. Sometimes man will try to fill his "God-Shaped Hole" with drugs, smoking, drinking, or sex, but he has always failed.

Not by works of righteousness which we have done... Titus 3:5

For by grace you are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, yet any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

So our good works, our religion, our baptism, our confirmation, our philosophy, nor our church membership can't get us into heaven. There is only ONE remedy for the problem of Sin and Separation...Jesus.

Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13


5. CHRIST'S INVITATION...
 
Even though we have sinned we can still live forever in heaven! You see, God sent his son, Jesus, to Earth as a sacrifice and to die for our sins. Then, three days later, he rose from the dead. All we have to do is believe in Jesus. Then, when we die, we will go to heaven and live forever!
 
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him... Revelation 3:20

6. THE PRAYER

If the following prayer expresses the desire of your heart...You can pray this prayer and Jesus Christ will come into your life as He has promised.

Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. Please forgive my sins, and help me turn from my them. Thank you for loving me and dying on the cross for me. I now invite you into my life as my personal Savior. Please make me what you want me to be. Amen.




If you just prayed that prayer, and meant it, then Congratulations! There is rejoicing in heaven!!
