“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Any traveler knows that you must read and follow directions in order to arrive successfully at your destination. This fact is also accurate as it pertains to our eternal destination – heaven! The Bible is our loving God’s roadmap given to make sure you and I get to the right place.
On the road to any destination we must constantly be checking the signs to make sure we’re going in the right direction. There are three signs to tell us if we’re on the path that leads to God’s eternal home.
Sign #1 – I Am A Sinner (Romans 3:23). We must see that we are separated from God by our sins or we will never want salvation.
Sign #2 – Jesus Paid For My Sin With His Sacrifice (Romans 5:8-10). Becoming aware that only Jesus, and none other, can pay the debt that we owe for all the sins we have committed through His sinless sacrifice is the second sign.
Sign #3 – I Accept Jesus Christ And Mean It (Romans 10:13). The most important sign on our journey is believing that Jesus is who He claimed to be, turn away from your sins and mean it. At that very instant, you’ll become a forever child of God!
Arriving at your destination always brings great joy, but no happiness will be greater than entering into heaven someday because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice.
Thanking God for His Mercy and Grace,
