Carefully check that the burners are clean and there are no spider webs or other possible obstructions to gas flowing from the burner.

Go to the furnace and have someone call for heat. Can you hear the gas valve open. It should be a distinctive metal sound. If you do not hear a metal clank, then while still calling for heat, make sure you have 24 volts AC at the gas valve. If you have 24 volts AC, then turn off the furnace and measure the gas valve solenoid for continuity. If no continuity then I think the gas valve may be the problem.

If you don't have 24 volts AC at the gas valve when calling for heat, check the various safety switches. Refer to the wiring diagram usually on the blower compartment door. You need to find why there's not 24 volts at the gas valve. Check that all wiring is securely fastened.
