God is a planner and He requires you to bring the F.A.I.T.H. to His plan of Salvation:

F is for forgiveness– We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God’s forgiveness (Ephesians 1:7)

A is for Available– Forgiveness is available.  It is available to all, but not automatic (John 3:16, Matthew 7:21)

I is for Imperfect– We are sinful in our nature and that sin separates us from God.  (Romans 3:23)

T is for Turn– Turn means to repent of our sin                                              

Turn from sin and self   (Luke 13:3)

Turn to Christ only (Romans 10:9)

H is for Heaven– Heaven is eternal life

Here (John 10:10) and Hereafter (John 14:3) 

How can a person have God’s forgiveness, heaven and eternal life, and Jesus as personal Savior and Lord?  By trusting in Christ and asking Him for forgiveness.  Take the step of faith described by another acronym of FAITH: Forsaking All I Trust Him.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner.  I believe You died for my sin and only through faith in Your death and resurrection can I be forgiven.  I want to turn from my sin and ask You to come into my life as my Savior and Lord.  Help me Lord, From this day on, to follow You and live a life that brings You glory and pleases You.  Thank You, Lord Jesus for saving me.  Amen.

After I received God’s Holy Spirit into my heart my life was transformed.  I was greatly encouraged and began to learn God’s Word by finding a church, getting involved in bible study and creating a prayer time in my daily routine.  

Are you certain if you died right now where you would spend eternity?
