To know God and be ready for heaven, follow these steps:
- Admit you are a sinner.
- "There is no one righteous, not even one . . . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:10, 23).
- (See Romans 5:8; 6:23.)
- Believe in Jesus (put your trust in Him) as your only hope of salvation.
- "For 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" (John 3:16).
- (See John 14:6.)
- Become a child of God by receiving Christ.
- "To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God" (John 1:12).
- (See Revelation 3:20.)
- Confess that Jesus is your Lord.
- "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). (See verse 10.)
