Where will you spend eternity?

Empty crossDo you know where you will spend eternity? The Bible makes it clear that a person can know where they are headed after they die. Do you know? There are only two places that you can spend eternity —heaven and hell. Have you chosen everlasting life in heaven, or have you chosen everlasting death in hell? Remember, you will spend eternity in one of these two places.

This is an all-important decision.

The Bible, God's book to all people, tells us about ourselves, about Himself, and about our destiny after death. (Read it online...) For a brief overview of God's Story, read What's the Purpose in Life?.

How do I choose?

By rejecting or failing to ask for salvation, you have chosen hell, whether you know it or not. If you don't want to go to hell, you must get saved. The message of salvation is simple enough for a child to understand, and can be summed up simply:

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6)

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. (John 3:16)

Each of us have sinned, and the punishment for sin is death, but by accepting this fact through repenting of our sin, and believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and the work He did on the cross, we can be saved from hell and the wrath to come, and spend eternity with Him in heaven.

Salvation explained with more passages from the Bible:
  1. You are a sinner. The Bible says that everyone, which includes you, has sinned (any thing wrong you ever thought, said, or did), and sin separates you from God.

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

    But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. (Galatians 3:22)

    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)

    All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6)

  2. The payment for sin is death. Sinners rightly deserve death.

    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

    And you...who were dead in trespasses and sins; (Ephesians 2:1)

    Even when we were dead in sins... (Ephesians 2:5)

    And you, being dead in your sins... (Colossians 2:13)

    ... we, being dead to sins... (1 Peter 2:24)

  3. God loves everyone, including you. God loved the world so much that He sent His Son to die on the cross 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. (John 3:16)

    Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:39)

    Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us... (1 John 3:16)

    In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. (1 John 4:9)

  4. The death of God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, in our place is God's only provision for man's sin. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from your sin. His blood was shed on the cross to save you! But that is not the end; He rose from the dead, and is in heaven today!

    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

    ...It is finished...[Jesus' last words on the cross] (John 19:30)

    Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. (1 Peter 2:24)

    For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (2 Peter 1:17)

    Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; (Romans 3:24,25)

    But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:4-7)

    But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:4-7)

    But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. (1 Peter 1:19-21)

  5. You must be born again. To come into the good of what the Lord Jesus Christ did on the cross, you must repent of your sin and believe on Him. This called being born again.

    Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; (Acts 3:19) commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)

    And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (Acts 16:31)

    Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)

    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:18)

    But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (John 1:12)

    All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6:37)

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

The Bible clearly states the Gospel — the Good News of Salvation; in the last day you will have no excuse if you do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repenting and believing in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to get saved, no works or sacraments you do will get you to heaven, Jesus did it all on the cross. His innocent blood was shed on the cross for all the sin of the world, and to be saved from the wrath to come you must receive Him as your Lord and Saviour.
