According to the Bible, the average lifespan of every human being is 70 years and we know that human beings do not live forever.
No matter how much technology advances, human beings cannot immortalize their life. No matter how much money you have, you cannot live forever.
But God has promised us to give them eternal life which can be obtained free of cost. All we have to do is accept Jesus as God and our only Savior with full faith.
If you accept the Lord Jesus you will live after this death and that is for eternity. Even though you had to suffer on earth, you will not suffer at all on the new earth. Your eternal life will be filled with only joy and happiness.
John 3:36(KJV)“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him”
Explanation:- We all will be saved if we believe in Jesus and obey all of his ways for our lives then we will overcome the wrath of God which is to come. Jesus made the way for mankind to be redeemed from God’s anger.
2 Thessalonians 1:8(KJV) “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ”
Explanation:- God will bring everyone in judgment according to his gospel. There will be no way out for us because God himself will give us the reward according to our works. This is a high time for each of us to repent for our sins and seek the grace of the Lord to avoid eternal death.
The Bible says that all people have sinned and become separated from God. The Bible also says that the blood of innocent animals is needed for the forgiveness of sins but if all people are sinners then even if people give blood for human beings sin will not be forgiven. But God loves us so much that He came to save us Even though he was born, he was not born in the wickedness of man.
He did no sin in this world, yet He willingly gave His blood for our sins to be forgiven our sins, and He rose from the dead three days later and that is Jesus. Jesus truly loves us so much that He Himself has never sinned, yet He has borne all our sins on His shoulders with a smile. So that we may be saved from sin (1 Peter 3: 18-20).
Romans 5:8(KJV)“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”
Explanation:- Once we all were sinners in God’s sight but his love made him forgive us and now we can come to him with a humble heart. Our righteous works will help us to build a friendly relationship with the Lord. As he has forgiven us and we have a hope to meet him after our physical death.
Romans 10:9(KJV)“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved”
Explanation:- To be saved from death we need to confess Jesus as our Lord and savior. Only Jesus can give us eternal life and we can rely on him because he proved himself that he is worthy to give us a new life where we will reign with the Lord forever.
1 Corinthians 15:3(KJV)“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures”
Explanation:- The death and resurrection of Jesus were according to the scripture. Before the birth of Jesus, everything concerning his suffering, death, and resurrection was foretold through the mouth of the prophets. Paul also experienced that Jesus died for our sins and he preached the gospel to the gentiles so they can be saved from God’s wrath.
The Word of God proves that Christ Jesus is the only true God because the character of a true God is all that exists in our Lord Jesus Christ and truly he is the only way we can get to our destination, heaven. If there was another road in front of us, God would have told us. Let us look at some Bible verses in this regard.
John 14:6(KJV)“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me”
Explanation:- Jesus announced that he alone is the way, truth, and life; none can reach To father without receiving him. We are commanded to receive Jesus and follow him till our death to enter into God’s kingdom.
Acts 4:12(KJV)“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”
Explanation:- Sin has affected the entire mankind and we all are born sinners. We cannot meet God with our sins as he is the holy one. Jesus gave his life on the cross to enable us to have fellowship with God. Now we have only Jesus’s name by which we can be saved. God has desired to redeem his people through this name.
Romans 6:23(KJV)“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”
Explanation:- Jesus is the hope for us to save us from the wages of sin. He came on this earth leaving heaven and took the form of a man to give his own life and he did so to give us a new everlasting life.

Romans 10:13(KJV)“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
Explanation:- Salvation belongs to Jesus and we have a hope that we will be resurrected at his second coming. We can believe him and obey him to get the reward from his hands.
1 John 5:13(KJV)“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God”
Explanation:- In Jesus, we can be saved and he alone is our God who shed his blood on the cross for us. We must believe him and walk in his promises to get a new life that has no end.
Can we go to heaven just by believing in Jesus? Many people have different opinions on this matter. But today we will see what the Bible says about it. Yes, the Bible says in many places that if you believe in Jesus you will be saved.
Example Of: –
Galatians 3:26 “For through faith in Christ Jesus, ye are all sons of God.”
Acts 16:31 “And they said,” Belief in the Lord Jesus, and you and your family will be saved. “
Is that really so? But not at all. If Satan also believes in Jesus and trembles with fear, will he too be saved? Not at all. I’m sorry to say but it’s true, faith alone does not save us.
By faith, we must obey the word of God to be saved. There is a concept in the Bible where only faith is mentioned. The Jews could not accept Jesus Christ. If anyone could accept him, they kept the laws of Moses.
Just think, I believed in Jesus, but I kept committing the sins that I used to do in my old life, so did I become a real Christian, did I become a real Jesus person? This is what our Lord Jesus Christ said about the one who truly loves me who listens and obeys me (John14: 21).
The Bible says that faith must go along with the works. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that if anyone is in Jesus, he is a new creation without the old way of life. If we look at the book of James 2:15:26 we will see that the Bible clearly says that faith alone does not save anyone. And the bottom line is you must accept Jesus as God and your Savior then you must take baptism in the name of Jesus and be steadfast in His word until death.
