ever heard about a place called Heaven? Heaven is God's
home. The Bible tells us that in Heaven, the street of the
city is pure gold, like clear glass.
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate
was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold,

Him in Heaven
But there is one thing that can never
be in Heaven. That one
thing is sin. Sin
is disobeying the rules God has given
His book, the Bible. God's Word
tells us we are all sinners.
For all have sinned, and come short
the glory of God.
All means every one of us, including
you and me. Sin separates you and
me from God because He is
perfect, without any sin at all. God cannot
allow sin where He is. God has said
sin must be punished. The punishment for

while He hung there, God put
all your sins on Him.
All we like sheep have gone
astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the
Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

our sins ... and was buried."

that which I also received, how that Christ died for

1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Three days after Jesus was buried a wonderful thing

God loves you. God says if you believe
in Jesus you will not
perish - you
will not be separated from God
forever. He will
forgive your sins. God says, "whosoever believeth." We could
put your name in the place whosoever."
If you believe in Jesus as your Savior,
He will give you
That's the kind of life you need to live
in Heaven with God.

that someday I
can be with You in Heaven.
Thank you for being my Savior.
