A Sunday school teacher attempts to teach a lesson to the six-year-olds about how you get to heaven. What do you do to get to heaven? So he asked some questions.

"If I sold my house, car and had a garage sale, then gave all the money to the church, would that get me to heaven?"

"NO!" the kids answered.

"How about if I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, painted the rooms and worked full time at the church, would that get me to heaven?"

"NO!" they shouted again.

"Okay, what if I were kind to animals and gave candy to all kids and loved my wife and kids, would that get me to heaven?"

Again, "NO!"

"Well...then, how CAN I get to heaven?"

A boy in the back stood up and shouted, "YOU GOTTA DIE TO GO TO HEAVEN!"

Yes...he's right! BUT there is a problem. You gotta be dead to go to heaven...but only if you die right. It's going to take more than simply being good or doing good to get you to heaven...this is important but it's not enough! To go to heaven you must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who gave His life that you might have heaven as your final, eternal home! Jesus told the thief on the cross that today, you will be with me in paradise because you asked forgiveness, "Jesus remember me..." was his short, simple, honest pray and he went to heaven with Jesus!

Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise" (Luke 23:43).
