What Does it Take to get to Heaven?

This tract is written to be simple and to the point. It asks a quetion that everyone wants to know and needs to understand before they die.

This tract is Scripturally sound. This tract uses several Bible verses to present the Gospel. It also has a Sinners Prayer on the back, just in case someone you give it to wishes to pray to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour, but cant quite find the words.

Here are some suggestions for this tract:

  1. Give it to someone when you go to a drivethrough.
  2. Put one in when you mail off a bill payment.
  3. Give it to someone you have just met but dont have time to talk to.
  4. Leave it on a park bench or restaurant table for someone to find
  5. Leave it with your tip when you eat at a restaurant. (Please leave a decent/good tip please)
  6. If your church allows you to place tracts in the "tract rack," you could place some there for others to use.
  7. You could give a sample to your pastor and see if he has use for more.
The inside and back of this tract read as follows:

What Does it Take to Get to Heaven?

Inside of tract

It is a simple enough question that everyone wants to know the answer to. However, you can ask ten different people and get ten different answers to it. Some people will tell you that you have to be as good as you can, obey the ten commandments, join a certain church or be baptized. Or they may say that you have to be sincere and work as hard as you can. So how do we know what it takes? We go to the source, we go to God's word to find the answer.

The Bible tells us that we are all sinners (Romans 3:23, Ecclesiastes 7:20). If you don't realize that you are a sinner you cannot go to Heaven. You may ask, why would this be true? Because only sinners need to have their sins paid for. If you don't know that you are a sinner you will never ask for the forgiveness of your sins. If you have ever told a little white lie or taken something that doesn't belong to you, it makes you a sinner. Our sins separate us from God (Isaiah 59:2). We can never be good enough to get to Heaven because no amount of good works can make up for the sin in our life (Titus 3:5). If we pay for our own sin, we will spend eternity in Hell (Matthew 25:41, Revelation 14:11) In light of these facts, things don't look very good for us. But God didn't want for anyone to die and go to Hell. So how did God take care of this problem? He could not leave such an important task to anyone else to do so He put on human flesh in the form of Jesus Christ (John chapter 1) and lived a perfect, sinless life. Because He had no sin of His own He was able to take our sins upon Himself. He died on the cross of Calvary to pay for our sins (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus Christ is the only way for anyone to go to Heaven (John 14:6).

The Bible tells us that if we will accept the payment that Jesus made for us on the cross for our sins and accept Him as our Saviour He will give us everlasting life (John 3:16-18, Ephesians 2:8,9). If we decide to try to make it to Heaven our own way we will spend eternity in Hell (John 3:36). Pride may enter into the picture and we may think that we can get to Heaven on our good merits, but the Bible tells us that our best is as filthy rags in God's sight (Isaiah 64:6). Please accept Jesus Christ as your saviour. God has done the hard part and paid for your sins. God gives us the choice to decide if we will accept His way to Heaven or try to make our own way. The Bible however is clear that God's way is the only way (Proverbs 16:25). You need to accept this payment to have it applied to your life. Over 150,000 people will die today. How many of them will die without Christ? Don't be one of them.

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" (Mark 8:36)

Back of tract

Here is a sample prayer for you to accept Jesus as your Saviour.

Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner, and that I can never be good enough to get myself into Heaven. I know that Jesus died on the cross for my sins, and the best I know how, I am accepting the payment He made for me. Please forgive me of my sins and allow me to live with you in Heaven someday. God, I thank you for forgiving me. Please help me to serve you in my daily life. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
