She’s surely going to heaven because she’s a good person!
Conversation with a friend led to this statement, and this friend was so certain her loved one would surely be accepted into Heaven because of this.
Wow! That would be great if all we had to do was be a good person to get to Heaven, wouldn’t it?
But, if that were true, why did Jesus suffer such a cruel death on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins? If we can get into Heaven just by being good, then His death was useless, in vain, meaningless.
Think about it. God sent His one and only Son, the sacrificial lamb who took away all the sins of the world! John 3:16 says that 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.
Jesus said in John 14:6, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
I found this great song on YouTube. Have a listen, won’t you?
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, the Life – Christian Worship Praise Song Lyrics / John 14:6
Don’t be fooled my friend into thinking that anyone will get to Heaven just by being a good person. It takes repenting of our sins and accepting what Jesus did for us on the cross, and making Him Lord of our life, to get to Heaven.
Jesus is coming back and He wants you to believe in him so you too can be in Heaven with him for all eternity. Have you realized your need of a Savior to save you from your sins? Have you put your trust in Jesus, the One who died for you? Dear friend, don’t delay because no matter how many good deeds you’ve done or how good of a person you’ve been, only Jesus can get you to Heaven.
