All who are obedient and faithful to God's Word and commands will inherit eternal life in heaven. Jesus went to prepare a place for those who will be faithful in their Christian life (John 14:1-6). It is an eternal house, not made with human hands (2 Cor. 5:1). Only those who are obedient and faithful to God will inhabit this spiritual resting place(Rev. 2:10; 22:4). Salvation, and thus eternal life in heaven, will be granted to those who obey God (Hebrews 5:9). Consequently, in order to go to heaven we must be faithful to all commandments given by God in His Word -- including the steps of salvation, faithfulness in our lives, and obedience in the commands of worship. When we stray in any area of our lives, we fall away and are separated from God (Is. 59:1-2). We must strive for perfection in our Christian lives, and when we fall short we must remember to repent and turn back to God in forgiveness (1 John 1:9).
