You must ask Jesus to be your Savior. You accomplish that by asking Him to forgive you of all your sins. When you ask Him to be your Savior and to forgive you, the request must be from the heart. You cannot just ramble off a few words and go on your merry way. At the core of every appeal for forgiveness is remorse. If you have remorse for your sinful state, you will receive God's forgiveness. After you commit yourself in words to Jesus, you then begin to follow Him with your actions. Do this by reading His Word and implementing His teachings into your life. If He says, "Love your neighbor," then love your neighbor. If He says, "Do not commit adultery," then do not commit adultery. Do this until the day He comes or until the day you join Him in death.
Jesus foretold that a small number of people would choose to be saved: "Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it" (Mat. 7:14).
The first reason people do not make it to Heaven is because they put off salvation or neglect it altogether. Too many are more worried with the cares of this life than they are of the one choice that will last for all eternity.
The second reason people don’t go to Heaven is that they reject Christ's gift of eternal life. People's pride and unwillingness to face up to their need for a Savior holds them back. Some reject salvation because they do not understand how His death 2,000 years ago could affect them now.
The third reason few people make Heaven their home is that they trust in a salvation that is not based on the blood of Jesus Christ. Some think, "If I've been a good boy or girl all my life, then He'll let me in." If anyone could live a good enough life to gain favor from God, they would also be able to clean themselves by rolling in mud.
Just a reminder Salvation 100% Free.
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
