This is what it's all about!
I was just a part of a Salvation experience! I got together with friends to pray for a fellow. As we were determining his need one of us asked him, "If God asks you why He should let you into heaven, what would you say?" The man said he'd point out the good things he'd done: reading the Bible, going to church (for at least 25 years), helping people. We helped him to see there's nothing we can do to earn our way into heaven. It's only by asking Jesus to forgive us of our sins that we can be assurred of a place in heaven and have his power for our lives on earth. He eagerly prayed for that kind of assurance.
If you don't have that kind of assurance, read on.
