Ask yourself this question...
FIRST YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS OUR CREATOR. AS OUR CREATOR HE COMMANDS US TO BE HOLY LIKE HIM. (1 Peter 1:16)
THE BAD NEWS IS THAT YOU HAVE FAILED TO BE HOLY. HOW HAVE YOU FAILED? YOU HAVE SINNED AGAINST GOD!
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God… (Romans 3:23)
You shall not lie, you shall not steal, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not misuse God’s name... (Exodus 20:3-17) IF YOU HAVE DONE ANY OF THESE THINGS YOU HAVE SINNED!
THE PUNISHMENT FOR SIN IS DEATH AND ETERNITY IN HELL.
For the wages of sin is death... (Romans 6:23).
These (sinners) will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power. (2 Thessalonians 1:8-9)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- not by works, so that no one can boast. (Eph. 2:8-9)
THE GOOD NEWS IS, IN HIS LOVE, GOD SENT HIS SON JESUS CHRIST TO PAY THE PENALTY FOR OUR SINS.
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
TO GET TO HEAVEN, A PERSON MUST REPENT OF THEIR SINS AND PLACE THEIR FAITH (TRUST) IN JESUS ALONE FOR SALVATION AND THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS.
“…repent and believe in the gospel.” (MARK 1:15, ACTS 2:38)
“if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (ROMANS 10:9)
