Step 1. Understand God’s Purposes–Peace and Eternal Life
God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal, fulfilling life.
The Bible says, “We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1).
Step 2. Admit the Problem–Our Sin and Separation
God did not create us like robots to automatically love and mechanically obey Him.
The first man and woman chose to disobey God and go their own willful way. This results in seperation from God.
The Bible says, “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).
Step 3. Discover God’s Bridge–Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ died on the cros and rose from the grave. Though He was God’s sinless Son, He becave a human, took our place, and paid the penalty for our sin, bridging the gap between God and us.
The Bible says, “For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).
Step 4. Embrace the Truth–Receive Christ
We must trust Jesus Christ as our Savior and receive Him by personal choice.
Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in” (Revelation 3:20).
Receive Christ in your life as your Lord and Savior, and have peace with God because it is through Lord Jesus that we have peace with God (Romans 5:1).
