The Times recently included a how-to guide. It was quite extensive, offering many helpful hints on how to accomplish many things. Here is one more.
How to be sure that you will go to heaven. (This is the for-sure Bible formula).
1. Admit you are a sinner. Romans 3:23. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
2. Realize sin has a payment. Romans 6:23. "For the wages of sin is death ..." (If you die unsaved you spend eternity in hell, away from God forever.)
3. Realize Jesus Christ already made the payment with His death, burial and resurrection. Revelations 1:5. "Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood."
4. Ask Jesus to include you in the redemption that He already accomplished. Ask Him to be your Savior (Romans 10:13). It will work.
