HoW to Find Peace with God

STEP ONE:  God’s Purpose

     God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life – abundant and eternal.  The Bible says, “…I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

STEP TWO:  The Problem of Seperation

     God created us to have an abundant life.  He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him, but gave us a will and freedom of choice.  We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way.  The result is seperation from God.  “For all have sinned and fall short of God’s glory.” (Romans 2:23)  “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

STEP THREE:  God’s Solution

     Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem.  He died on the cross and rose from the grave, paying the penalty for our sin, bridging the gap between God and mankind.  “But God demonstrates His own love fror us in this:  While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

STEP FOUR:  Our Response

     We must trust Jesus and receive Him by personal invitation.  “…If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”  (Romans 10:9)
