Heaven: How Can I Know for Sure? That’s a great question!
1 John 5:13 tells us,
“I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
Did you notice those three powerful little words you may know? We don’t have to guess or wonder about whether or not we have eternal life … we can know whether or not we have it.
In John 3:16, Jesus gave a clear and simple explanation of the way to eternal life when He said:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Believing means putting your faith in these facts about Jesus: Jesus was God; He left heaven to come to earth in the form of human baby; He grew up living a sinless life; He died on the cross for you as a perfect, sinless sacrifice for the penalty you owed for your sins; He was buried and rose from the dead three days later; and He returned to heaven where He is now in a position of power of authority at the right hand of God the Father.
Simply put, believing Jesus is the key to knowing we have eternal life.
