Our God wrote in His word that He wants us to believe in Him and we will go to heaven. Romans 10:9 – Because, 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.
First! Be careful of the service you are doing if it is stealing your devotion to Jesus.
Secondly! (This one caught me off guard and had me thinking for months) Be careful of the service you are doing if you are doing it for YOU. For YOU to look good, for YOU to be praised. –“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!” Matthew 7:21-23
So, what does that mean when it comes to getting into heaven? Is it just believing that Jesus is our savior or is it two fold? I’m not claiming to be an expert, I am asking this question to learn. Does it also mean that we need to do the will of our father in heaven so that we are able to walk through the narrow gate? My entire life, I believed all that I needed to do was to confess that Jesus is Lord.
