God's Gift for Teens|
So whatís the first thing that comes to your mind when someone asks you one of these questions: ďDo you know if youíre going to Heaven when you die?Ē or ďAre you saved?Ē Youíre probably thinking, ďOMG get me out of here! I so donít want to talk to this religious weirdo! I donít need someone telling me Iím going to HellĒ So you just say, ďYeah of course Iím going to Heaven when I die. Iím a good person.Ē And that right there is your biggest mistake. I know most people just want to brush the truth aside and live life their own way. But you NEED to read this! Itís a matter of life and death, literally. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Just put aside Facebook or whatever aimless thing youíre doing right now and take a few minutes to read this and it will change your life forever.
So Iíd just like to start off by telling you that you need to keep an open mind about this. Just keep reading and donít be offended by anything I say. Sometimes the truth hurts. If youíre like most people, youíve been lied to your whole life. This message is ingrained in all our minds: If youíre a good person youíll go to Heaven and if youíre a bad person youíll go to Hell. Right? Weíve been taught this our whole life. Well Iím here to tell you that message couldnít be more wrong! Now donít get me wrong, Iím not saying go out and do every bad thing you can think of because there arenít any repercussions, because thatís not the case. What Iím saying is there is absolutely NO way for you to get to Heaven on your own. You canít be your own savior.
Itís not going happen. Sorry. The ONLY way to get to Heaven is if youíre perfect. And last I checked no oneís perfect.
When you die, God doesnít put all your good and bad deeds on a scale to determine where to place you. Do you think if thereís more good you go to Heaven and if thereís more bad you go to Hell? All it takes is ONE sin to go to Hell, just one. Thatís all it takes. And EVERYONE has sinned at least once. That means none of us can get to Heaven on our own, even though we think we can.
So like I said before, you have to be PERFECT in order to get into Heaven. And none of us are perfect. One of the things people think they have to do in order to get to Heaven is to follow the Ten Commandments. Well even if you try as hard as you might, youíll never be able to follow all of them forever. There is no possible way to follow them all and God knows that. Thatís why he gave them to us; to show us that we were sinners and we need a savior.
He wanted us to realize that we were sinners and that we couldnít get to Heaven on our own. He wanted us to turn to him for help. And he delivered. So how can we be saved?
Thatís the big question. How do we become perfect? Do we have to confess our sins to a priest? Nope. It doesnít do a thing. It might temporarily make you feel better, but your sins are still there. Okay then, what about getting baptized when youíre a baby? Nope. You just got a mini bath. Youíre still going to sin. Iím sure there are tons of things you think you have to do to get to Heaven. There are a bunch of ceremonies you think you have to go through in order to get to heaven. What if you live alone on a deserted island for your entire life? Because you didnít do any of those ceremonies, do you go to Hell? Of course not. There is only ONE way and ONE way only! Get that through your head! No ifs, ands, or buts. And if you donít trust that one way, you WILL go to Hell.
Alright alright already! How do you do it? How do you become perfect? How do you get to heaven?
Admit that youíre a sinner and trust that Jesus Christ, died on cross for YOUR sins, thatís the only way you will get to heaven.
Thatís it. Done.
Hold up! Wait! Thatís it? No way. It canít be that simple. No ceremony, no confessing your sins, no priest blessing you?
Yes! Thatís exactly what Iím saying. And this all takes place in your mind. You donít have to confess this to anyone. You donít have to do anything special. You just have to make this decision in your head. Itís just between you and God. You can say it all you want but until you truly believe it in your mind, youíll be on the path to Hell. But you have to trust it 100%. You canít be 50% Jesus and 50% good works. You canít even be 99% Jesus and 1% good works. Think of Jesus like a chair. When you sit in a chair, you trust it completely. You donít imagine itís going to just fall apart beneath you. Youíre probably sitting in your chair right now, not thinking twice about it. Youíre not hovering over the chair, pretending like youíre sitting on it but not really sitting on it. Half your butt isnít on it and the other half is standing. No! Youíre just sitting there not even thinking about. So why would you do that with Jesus? Why would you say you trust him to save you, but then you go and try to do a bunch of good works just in case. Thatís not the trust that saves, is it?
Hereís another way to think of it. Imagine that everyone has a spiritual bank account for their sins. And the only way to get to Heaven is by having your sin bank account completely empty. How do we do that? Well there is no way we can empty the account by ourselves. Thatís why Jesus came down from Heaven to pay for our sins. Did you get that? Pay for our sins! When we die, someone has to pay for our sin debt. And sinners go to Hell. And since weíre all sinners, weíd all go to Hell. So Jesus said, if you trust that I died on the cross to pay for YOUR sins and trust that Iím the only way, I will pay for your sins with MY LIFE BLOOD so you can go to Heaven when you die. So when you make that switch in your head and trust in Jesus alone, ALL those sins (past, present, and future) that were in your bank account instantly get stamped "PAID IN FULL" and put onto Jesus. Now you have a clear bank account, God now considers you righteous and Holy now. Youíre looked upon as perfect in Godís eyes, like you have never sinned a day in your life. All of your future sins are also paid in full before you even commit them. You are saved in an instant and for ever and ever... ETERNAL LIFE GIVEN FREELY FROM GOD TO ANYONE WHO BELIEVES in JESUS!
I donít know about you but I think thatís awesome!
Yeah yeah. Okay. Thatís awesome. But thatís only temporary, right? Tomorrow when I lie to my parents about my grades my bank account is going to start filling up again. So now what? Do I need to do this mind switch multiple times, like a spring cleaning?
NO! This is the BEST PART! This deal is forever, eternal, everlasting, permanent! Once your bank account is cleared, it will never fill up again because all your sins were paid for when Jesus died on the cross. Past, present, and future sins are all paid for! Thatís a pretty sweet deal, right? So now no matter what happens, you know 100% that youíre going to Heaven! You donít have to think oh well yesterday I had about a 60% chance of going to heaven, but today I was better so now itís up to 75%. Thatís totally not necessary. The deal is sealed. Thereís no changing it. ONCE YOUR SAVED YOUR ALWAYS SAVED because God Gift is ETERNAL LIFE, not temporary life or probationary life.
Alright smarty pants. So now youíve got me thinking. No matter what I do Iím not going to hell? No matter what sins I commit, Iím still going to heaven?
So what's the point of being a good person and following the rules? I can do whatever I want and have no consequences. I can sin all I want. And since doing good works wont get me to heaven, why should I even do them?
Getting saved isnít like getting a free pass. Itís true, you can sin all you want and still go to heaven. But let me WARN YOU, youíll get to heaven sooner than you thought, in fact A LOT quicker if you sin continually, than if you had followed the rules and been good. Youíre considered Godís child now. And if you do wrong, you WILL be punished by God Himself. you are His child now and He WILL discipline you in His perfect way! Not always to the point of being killed, but you will be punished in some way and it will be painful. When you do good things God will bless and reward you here on earth and in heaven and when you do bad things God will take away rewards that he had planned on giving you here now and in heaven. I personally want lots of blessings and rewards here on earth AND later when I go home to heaven.You were put on this earth for 2 reasons:
And hereís a bonus! When you save people and do good works, youíll get rewards in heaven. When weíre saved, we get a home in heaven. And the things we do here on earth either fill up our home with great rewards or take away our rewards in Heaven. So there are major ETERNAL benefits to saving others and doing good works. Youíre going to be in Heaven for an eternity. We might as well make it an enjoyable eternity!
Okay so this is all sounding pretty good. I donít see any downsides. But why should I believe you? Youíre just some person, just like me.
I get all my facts from the Bible. And the Bible has all the answers youíll ever need. The Bible is 100% true.
Well the Bible was just written by men. Thereís nothing special about it.
Youíre right and wrong. The Bible was written by men but God told them EXACTLY WHAT to write! Every single word of the Bible is Godís word, not manís. And God canít lie, which means you can believe everything he says. Secondly the Bible is a very SPECIAL BOOK, it's GODS WORD, don't you want to know what your Creator has to say about things?
Well prove it. Give me proof that the Bibleís true.
Keep in mind that the Bible was written thousands of years ago. Here are just some of the things that we now know to be true that were written in the Bible long before they were ever proven to be fact:
