Many people say they want to go to Heaven, but they don't have the slightest idea of what it takes to get there. First of all, being a good person will not get you to Heaven because the Bible teaches that being good alone won't save you. In order to make it to Heaven man must be obedient to Christ and that is only accomplished by studying His word to know what one must render obedience to, John 5:39, Matt. 7:21, Heb. 5:8-9.
Also, Jesus said if we die in our sins we won't go to Heaven, so getting out of our sins is important in order to enter Heaven, John 8:21-24, Col. 1:12-14, 1 John 1:6-10, Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, Gal 3:27. And last of all, being a part of the church, the family of God, is important. For Christ has only one true church and only the saved can be found within its borders. Yes, being in Christ's church is just as important as being in the ark during Noah's day, 1 Cor 12:13, Eph. 4:4, Eph. 5:23, Acts 2:47, John 10:9, Matt. 15:13-14.
Hope to hear from you or to see you at the services.
