There’s a difference between knowing about Jesus and truly knowing Him. Only a relationship with Jesus Christ can heal us from the sickness of our sin and give us eternal life.
So, do you really KNOW God? Take a look at the plan of salvation.
To be sure you are going to heaven, it is essential that you know God
in a personal relationship. Without this relationship, you are completely separated from Him (Rom. 3:23; 6:23).
Name Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
You must believe that Jesus is who He said He is—God’s Son.
As the perfect, sinless Son of God, only Jesus can forgive your sin
Own up to your sin.
Take personal responsibility for your sin and confess it to God. He will hear your prayer and forgive you of your sin. Forgiveness is a free gift—all you have to do is ask (Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9; 1 John 1:9-10).
Walk a different direction.
The Bible calls this turning away from your sinful choices repentance. To repent really just means to go in a different direction. As a Christian, you will want to live differently (Luke 13:3; Eph. 5:8).
