Is it possible to know if I'm going to Heaven?
Everyone needs salvation because all people have sinned. No one gets a free ride, because every person is guilty before God. We all fall short of the mark.
Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God"
The price (or consequence) of sin is death. The punishment we all deserve is both physical and spiritual death, thus we need God's salvation to escape the deadly, eternal consequences of our sin.
Romans 6:23 - "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord."
No matter how hard we try, we just can't be good enough on our own.
Ephesians 2:8,9 - "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
Jesus Christ died for our sins. His death paid the full price for our salvation. Through the death and resurrection of God's own Son, the debt we owed was satisfied.
Romans 5:8 - " But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
We (all sinners) receive salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. Anyone who places their trust in Jesus receives the promise of eternal life.
Romans 10:9-10: " 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. 1 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
Salvation through Jesus Christ brings us into a relationship of peace with God. When we accept God's gift, we have the reward of knowing we'll never be condemned for our sins.
Romans 5:1 - "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ"
Romans 8:1 - "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,"
Romans 8:38-39 -"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
