He wasn't ashamed of me.

Jesus was not too proud to die for me.  He hung naked on a cross, for all to see.
He says that if I am ashamed of him, he will be ashamed of me.
I am not going to pretend that you don't need him.
We all need him, desperately, in this wicked world.
You know that times are perilous.
All of our wealth will pass away.
Nothing will matter when we die except for one thing....
what did we do with Jesus?

How I know He died for me.

Well, I will tell you what I read. Revelations 3:20.  Jesus is talking to us.  He says "Look, I am standing at the door and knocking.  If anyone opens the door, I will come into him and dine with him. And he shall dine with me". I read this verse and reallly believed that Jesus would come into my heart and fellowship with me, if I asked Him to.
He really did! It was the coolest thing that every happened to me!
I KNEW beyond a doubt where I would go if I died right then.
Do you know, beyond a doubt where you will go when you die?
What could be more important?
Don't you want to know?
If you feel a tugging at your heart, pray with me.
Dear God,
I do want to go to heaven when I die.  Show me that you love me.  I know you love me. Help me to believe that Jesus loves me after all I have done.  I thank you for dying on the cross. 
I know that you must love me alot to die for me.  I believe your word which says "Whoever comes to me, I will never turn away." Please forgive me for all of my wrong doing, and be my lord and savior.
I invite you into my life. I will stay with you forever, let me never turn away.
Help me to live for you everyday.

How to Live Forever.

I know that you know that one day you will die. We all will.
I know that you know that there is no way to know for sure where you will go when you die.
There is no guarantee.
The only way to know for sure, is to have The Creator let you know, for sure.
Has God ever come down and told anyone "You are going to heaven when you die?"

The Bible says that God's spirit is able to speak to our spirits (the real part of us) and let us know that we belong to Him.

I had that happen!  I was 12 years old when I asked Jesus Christ to come into my heart and make me a brand new person.
He did!
Here's how I did it. I told Jesus that I believed he died on the cross to pay for my sins.  I invited Him to come into my life.
Read below to find out how I knew these things are true.
