Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith [it is] impossible to please
[him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that]
he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

     This may be one of the most important statements in the Bible. If
you do not believe in Jesus, then how could He be your Saviour? There
are so many Scriptures that explain how important it is for us to
earnestly seek God. He is available to those who will accept Him. He
will not force Himself on you, you must accept Him of your own free
will. Matthew 7:7 "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall
find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:" This Scripture
explained it so well.  Salvation through Jesus Christ is a free gift.
The only way to have any gift, is to reach out and take it. Salvation
must be received.  John 3:18 "He that believeth on him is not
condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he
hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."  Let
us look at one or two more Scriptures showing that belief in Jesus
Christ is the only way we can make it to heaven.  Romans 10:14 "How
then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how
shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall
they hear without a preacher?" You can easily see from this that you
can not even pray if you do not believe in Jesus.  The only prayer
that makes it through to heaven, is the prayer you pray in the name of
Jesus. How can you pray in a name you do not believe in. You see the
futility of this. We find the way to heaven is in the same name that
we must pray in. The next Scripture is Jesus speaking, because it is
in red in the Bible. John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,
the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
