Three steps that the thief on the cross beside Jesus took to get to heaven.

1. Admit Your Sin!

Instead of mocking Jesus like on thief did - the other thief admitted that he had committed the crimes and deserved his death on the cross (also admitted that Jesus did NOT deserve death)

2. Ask Jesus For Help!

By recognizing that Jesus did not deserve death - and seeing Jesus as a Savour the thief asked Jesus,

Luke 23:42 KJV

And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

3. Receive God's Forgiveness!

When someone gives you a gift - you must accept in order for it to truly be yours.  The thief obviously accepted and even though it was 'late' in life ALL his sins were cleaned!

Take a lesson from the thief and take these steps to start making your way to heaven.
