How to Find Peace

John3_16

No matter what you have done before today.  No matter how you feel right now. God loves you and wants you to live in His peace.  With Christ, you will experience a new life.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3: 16 NIV

 

Romans3_23

 

Unfortunately sin separates us from God.  Sin is anything we think, say, or do that breaks God’s commands. We all fall way shorter than the above picture.  No matter how hard we try, we can never measure up to God’s glorious standard.  But God had a plan to bridge the gap of separation between us and God.

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3: 23 NLT

1 Peter 2_24

 

God loved the world so much that he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to earth to live a perfect life. God’s love bridged the gap that separated us from Him. When Jesus Christ willingly died on the cross, He paid the penalty for your sins. But that’s not the end, because Jesus rose from the tomb three days later. He is alive today and living at the right hand of God, the Father.

He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. 1 Peter 2: 24 NLT

John1_12

When you respond by accepting the gift Jesus is offering, you become part of God’s family.

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1: 12 NLT

Will You Receive Christ?

  1. Do you ADMIT your need for Christ? You are a sinner.
  2. Are you willing to REPENT and turn from your sin?
  3. Do you BELIEVE that Jesus died for you on the cross?
  4. Will you pray, ASKING Jesus Christ to come into your life?

Revelation 3:20 Jesus says, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”

Romans 10: 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Will you Pray?

Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ, I am a sinner.  I confess _________ and am willing to turn from my sin. I believe that you died for my sin and rose from the dead on the third day. Help me to turn from my sins.  I invite you into my home, my life, mind mind, and heart.  I desire to trust you and follow you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord.  In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

Did you Commit Your Life To Christ?

If you prayed to commit your life to Christ, then the bible says that YOU ARE SAVED. 

John 10:9 Jesus said, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. ”

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus is the way to eternal life.

A person who receives Christ will live forever with Christ.

Revelation 3:20 Jesus says, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”

Romans 10:13 NIV for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

 

Once you commit your life to Christ, you are a child of God. 

John1_12

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1: 12 NLT

When you receive Christ, you became a child of God.

Once you commit your life to Christ, you have everlasting life.
