Perhaps you have never known or are curious about what God and Jesus is all about. Maybe you grew up around religion and have never heard the true Gospel. Or maybe you even blocked God out of your life completely due to circumstances or wrong teaching and have a fear that God is angry with you, does not love you, or you even question whether or not He exists.
No matter what the reason, I am here to tell you that God does exist, He does love you, and He wants to be in your life and give you the wonderful life He has created you for. Most of all, regardless of what you have done in your past, God wants you in heaven. The Bible tells us exactly how we can find the gift of eternal life through Jesus. “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” – 1 John 5:13.
The honest truth, there is only one way to heaven and that is through the Lord, Jesus Christ. Joining a religion or doing what you think is good will not. You have to be willing to accept Jesus Christ into your life. I am here to explain how you can come to know Jesus Christ, accept Him into your life, and receive eternal life in heaven, and the Kingdom of God.
Below is a plan, it is God’s plan that teaches us how to receive the gift of eternal life and Kingdom of God through His Son, Jesus Christ. After you have read this plan, you will have the knowledge you need to accept God’s gift. It is solely up to you whether or not you choose to do so. I pray that God will work in your heart to enable you to understand these truths and welcome you into the Kingdom of God.
1. You Must Realize All Have Sinned
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3:23
Sin is any wrong doing in your life, it is any action, thought, or word spoken that is immoral, deceitful, or illegal. Sin includes more than just stealing, cheating, and adultery, it is also acts such as rebellion, lying, anger, bitterness, and disobedience of any sort. No one is without sin, no matter how much one tries to keep the wrongs out of their lives, we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God (getting to heaven on our own).
2. You Must Realize God’s Price For Sin
“For the wages of sin is death;” – Romans 6:23a.
“And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” – Revelation 20:14.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” – Revelation 21:8.
God’s price for sin is death. God is not just talking about a physical death here, we are all going to die one day, He is talking about a spiritual death. This goes all the way back to the very first sin, when Adam and Eve sinned against God by eating fruit from the tree that was forbidden. “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” – Genesis 2:17. Because they sinned we are born with a physical body and a soul, we do not have the Spirit of God in us to sustain us beyond physical death of our body. But that is not all, because the soul does not have God’s Spirit when the body dies it gets cast into hell.
3. You Must Realize That You Are A Sinner Too
“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” – Romans 5:12.
Since the beginning of creation when Adam and Eve sinned by eating the forbidden fruit we have been cursed and are all born with a sin nature. You cannot escape the death payment owed to God for even the tiniest of sin done years ago. If you say that you have no sin in your life than you are unaware of this truth, for everyone has sinned. “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” – I John 1:10.
4. You Must Realize God Sent His Son To Pay The Price For Your Sin
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” – John 3:16,17.
God does love you and does not want to see you cast into hell and the lake of fire. God sent His only begotten Son, meaning to bare, bring forth, to save you, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.” – Matthew 1:23-25. Emmanuel means God with us, Jesus means Savior. This means that since Jesus was sent here through the immaculate conception of Mary, this qualified Him to be born without sin.
5. You Must Realize How Jesus Paid The Price For You
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” – Romans 5:8-10.
Jesus paid the price of your sin debt by giving up His life for you. “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” – 2 Corinthians 5:21.
6. You Must Realize That Jesus Did Not Just Die, He Arose From The Dead Also
“Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,” – Luke 24:1-6.
Jesus might have died that day, but He resurrected three days later, proving that His death would provide a permanent solution for the price owed for sin. Jesus not only provided a way for us to bet to heaven, but that we might have the victory over the second death by His resurrection.
7. Now, If You Believe In Jesus, God Has A Gift For You
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 6:23.
The gift is the Gift of Eternal Life. Eternal life, means endless, forever, and always, it is only through Jesus Christ that you can receive the gift of eternal life. “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.” – 1 John 5:11,12.
8. How To Receive God’s Gift
There is only One Way to receive His gift, you have to ask Him for it, believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” – Romans 10:9,10.
The only way to ask God for anything is by talking to Him, and we do that by prayer, so, you must pray to God yourself. Confessing to a priest, pastor, or praying to Mary or any saint cannot and will not take you to heaven. No one can pray for you to get into heaven, you must call on Jesus yourself and ask Him to save you. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:13.
Are You Ready to Receive The Gift Of Eternal Life?
Accept the following statements to be true.
- I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He is the only way to heaven.
- I realize that I am a sinner and cannot get to heaven on my own.

- I believe God raised Him from the dead three days later to give me victory over death.
- I realize that salvation is a free gift from God through Jesus Christ, and nothing else is required.
- I realize that the only way I can receive Gods gift is to ask Him for it myself.
- Now, if you believed those statements to be true then pray this prayer
I confess that I am a sinner. I do believe with all of my heart that Your Son, Jesus Christ led a sinless life and died for me to pay my sin debt, and that He was buried, and arose three days later also. I ask You, Jesus to come into my heart and save me. And from this moment on I have complete trust in You and will only depend on You for my salvation. Amen.
Now, if you just said that prayer and it was truly from your heart then you have received God’s gift of eternal life. That means that will enjoy eternity with Your Saviour, Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of God.
