Directions to Heaven
1. Open Bible to John 3 v 16 - 18 and read.
2. Turn to Romans 3 v 23 and read 1 verse.
3. Turn to Isaiah 1 v 18 and read 1 verse.
4. Contemplate on what you have read and ask God to make it plain to you. Ask him to reveal why Jesus had to die and how it can change your life today. If you find it difficult to pray try this, "God if you are there please hear me, and help me."
5. From your heart with sincerity ask God to cleanse your life from sin, and to show you the life he has planned for you.
Prayer could be,
"Lord I am aware I have sinned, please forgive me and help me to live as you want me to live."
6. Believe in faith that your prayer has been heard and answered by God.
7. Tell someone what you have done, preferably a Christian who can help you on this road to heaven.
8. Read the bible and as it becomes alive to you live it out.
9. When you get to Heaven look me up, I'll be glad to meet you. My name is Davy, but as far as I know I will have a new name. Check the Lamb's Book of Life where I may be recorded as Davy from 'the Broch' Scotland.
Hope to see you there
If you have no bible this is what it says;
John 3 v 16 NIV
"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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
Romans 3 v 23 NIV
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Isaiah 1 v 18 NIV
"Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
