Are You Prepared To Meet God?

We spend much of our lives making preparation for different things; homes, education, jobs, family, vacation, hobbies, etc. But when was the last time you took inventory of your soul to see if you were really prepared to meet God? The Bible teaches that some day, maybe today, you will have to stand before Him and give an account of your life. Friend, if you died today do you know you would go to heaven? Friend, heed the warning of the prophet Amos as he proclaims: “Prepare to meet thy God.” Amos 4:12

Here’s How

1. Realize you are a Sinner…
Be honest with yourself and God. Agree with His word. He already knows everything about you!” For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

2. Recognize Your Need For Salvation…
If you desire to go to heaven when you die, you first must be saved… saved the Bible way. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9. You cannot work your way to heaven.

3. Repent of Your Sin…
Be willing to turn from your sin and from your attempts to save yourself, and turn to Jesus Christ who is waiting to save you. Luke 13:3, John 14:6

4. Receive Jesus Christ as Your Personal Savior…
Pray this prayer: Lord I know I am a sinner and I ask you to forgive me of my sins and come into my heart and be my Savior. I repent of my sins and I receive you now as my Savior. Thank you for saving me. John 1:12, Romans 10:13

5. Respond to the Scriptures…
When you receive Christ as Savior and become a Christian, you should tell others the good news, begin attending a fundamental Baptist Church and follow the Lord’s command to be scripturally baptized. Acts 2:41, 42, and 47
