24 Aug I’m Going To Heaven, I’m A Good Person!
I hear that a lot. When I witness to people and ask them why they think they are going to Heaven, they say they think so because they are a good person.
No where in the Bible does it say that you go to heaven because you are a good person.
John 3 is a great chapter to read, but the verses I want to point out is that when Nicodemus went to visit Jesus he believed who he was and did not understand it all.
Verse 3 says, 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.
Perhaps you are at that point in your life where you are thinking about spiritual things.
Maybe you think you are going to heaven because you are a good person and do good things and don’t do anything really bad.
Maybe you went to church your whole life and your parents are Christians.
Maybe your Father was a Pastor.
Maybe you were baptized when you were a baby and think that will get you into heaven.
Maybe you have other reasons…
…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.
If you read on in John 3 you will see:
- Nicodemus questioned Jesus…
- Can he enter a second time into his mothers womb
- Jesus said ye must be born of water and of the Spirit
- That which is born of the flesh is flesh
- That which is born of the Spirit is spirit
- Marvel not ye must be born again
- The wind blow, you can hear it but cannot tell when it comes or where it goes
- Nicodemus still questioned Jesus, How can this be
- Jesus questioned Nicodemus that he was a master of Israel and
- You see and hear these things, and receive not
Then continue down through the chapter to this famous verse…
John 3:16 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.
Not only did Jesus die a horrible death for you, but when they buried him in the grave, after 3 days the stone was rolled away and he arose from the grave, stayed on earth for a short while, then ascended to Heaven and lives with God.
So, now is a good time to ask yourself, do you believe in Jesus, Son of God. Do you believe this whole verse, the word of God? God so loved us he sent Jesus to die for us. He died so we can live eternally.
Do you believe that?
Your heart should be exploding
