What must I do to inherit eternal life?
Perhaps the most important question every person needs to be able to answer is this: What do I need to do in order to inherit eternal life? How do I get to Heaven? Many people oversimplify their answer to this question and believe it is enough to simply be a good person, to avoid breaking the commandments, and to go to church. Although all these things are extremely important in the journey towards heaven, not enough attention is paid to the importance of following Jesus. In fact, Jesus is rarely mentioned. However, Jesus is THE way to heaven and being in a relationship with him is key to inheriting the Kingdom of God.
A man ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” ...Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to [the] poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.” At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.
