1. God's Purpose

 

God loves you and desires for you to have peace and eternal life with Him.

 

The Bible says:


"..we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 5:1


"..the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23b


If it is God's plan for everyone to experience peace and eternal life, why are so many people not experiencing this?


2. Man's Problem


Man has a sin problem which causes separation from God.

 

The Bible says:


"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God...the wages of sin is death." Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23a


"But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear." Isaiah 59:2


3. God's Solution


Jesus Christ died on the cross, paying the penalty for man's sin. He then rose from the grave alive, proving His power over sin and death. Jesus has bridged the gap between man and God.


The Bible says:


"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8


4. Man's Response


You can receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior when you believe that He has died for your sins and risen from the grave and you trust in Him alone to save you.


The Bible says:


"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16


How To Receive Christ As Your Savior And Lord


1. Admit you are a sinner.

2. Be willing to repent (turn) from your sins.

3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave.

4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life. Ask Him to save you.
