Want Peace?

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life--abundant and eternal.

The Bible says. . .

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

"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

"I have come that they may have life, and that they mayhave it more abundantly." John 10:10

Why don't most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned for us to have?

God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and freedom of choice.

We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still mkae this choice today. The results in separation from God.

The Bible says. . .

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

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

People have tried in many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God. . .

The Bible says. . .

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." Proverbs 14:12

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

No bridge reaches God . . . except one.

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.

The Bible says. . .

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." 1 Timothy 2:5

"For Christ died for sins once forall, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God." 1 Peter 3:18

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

God has provided the only way. . .

Each person must make a choice. . .

We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.

The Bible 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 him, and he with me." Revelation 3:20

"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." John 1:12

"That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

Where are you?

Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

Here is how you can receive Christ:

  1. Admit your need. (I am sinner)
  2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
  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 through the Holy Spirit. (Receive Him as Lord and Savior).

How to Pray. . .

Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.

In Your Name, Amen.

If you just prayed this prayer and want a relationship with Jesus email Pastor Tracy right now and let him know your decision. He is waiting to talk with you.
