Salvation

HOW CAN WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD?

 

STEP 1. GOD’S PURPOSE: PEACE AND LIFE

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

 

John 10:10  “I have come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly.” 

 

STEP 2.  OUR PROBLEM: SEPARATION

Romans 3:23  “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

 

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

 

STEP 3. GOD’S REMEDY: THE CROSS

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

 

I Peter 3:18  “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.”

 

STEP 4. OUR RESPONSE: RECEIVE CHRIST AS SAVIOR

Revelation 3:20  “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”

 

John 1:12  “But to as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God, even to those who believe on His name.”

 

Romans 10:13  “For whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

 

Dear friends: Jesus went to the cross to prove His great love for you! He wants you to have peace and joy in your life! You must receive His love by:

(1) admitting that you are a sinner;

(2) turning from your sin;

(3) believing that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave; and

(4) praying to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

 

Your prayer might be something like this: Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sin. I want to turn from my sin. I invite You to come into my life. I trust You and want You to be my Savior and my Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
