How to get to heaven
from New Jersey

He [Christ] became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him.
    - Hebrews 5:9

When planning a journey, the wise traveler studies a road map. Yet many people trust their own sense of direction or a friend's advice -- and end up lost!

Have you been doing this with your journey to heaven? To get to heaven from New Jersey (or from any other place) you must consult God's road map, the Bible. If God's heaven is your goal, then you can count on God to give clear directions.

Trying to get to heaven on your own just won't work. "It is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9). "There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death" (Proverbs 14:12).

Jesus said, "I am the way.... No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6). In fact, no one can get to heaven without Him. "There is no other name under heaven ... by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).

Here's how another writer put it. Click the links to read comments and Bible verses about various points.

Permit me just to ask you, "Are you a Christian?" Oh, you say, that is a very plain question. Then let it have an honest answer now. But what do you mean by a Christian? you ask. I mean by a Christian a person that really knows Christ -- not a person that knows something about Him, but a person that really knows Christ as his own Savior.

A Christian is one who knows the rejected and once slain, but now raised and glorified, Savior at God's right hand, and is connected with and united to that risen Savior, where He now is. A Christian is one who is born again of God, whose sins are all forgiven -- all blotted out, and who has received the Holy Spirit, and knows it.

If you can only say, "I hope this is all mine," you are not a true Christian in the proper sense of the word; and, let me tell you frankly, you have not got hold of the real essence of Christianity yet.

A Christian is one that is indissolubly connected with the victorious risen Savior. He is linked to the One who went down first of all into death for him, bore his sins, blotted them all out, met all the claims of God in righteousness in respect of those sins, and that Savior is risen without a single sin, and has gone into God's presence, to prepare a place and take him to it.

The blessing of the believer is this: He knows his sins are forgiven, he knows he is saved, and knows God is his Father; he has the Holy Spirit dwelling in him, and he is a person standing on the other side of death and judgment, waiting, at the return of the Bridegroom (Christ Himself), for glory.

Are you, I repeat, a Christian? Have you that title to glory without a flaw? What is that title? The precious blood of Christ -- nothing more, and nothing less.
