1. God Loves You.
God loves you and wants you to know Him so He can fill you with peace and give you real-life — forever. “God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only son so that everyone who has faith in Him will have eternal life and never die.” Jesus said, “I came so that everyone would have life, and have it to its fullest.”
Since God planned for us to have peace and life, why are we so far from God?
2. We are Separated from God.
Since the beginning of time, we have chosen to disobey God and go our own way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.
“All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s holiness.” Sin is choosing to say or do or think things that are against God’s plan. “The result of unforgiven sin is death. But God’s gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
There is only one way to reach God.
3. Jesus Christ Died for our Sins.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He is the only One who can bring us back to God. Jesus died on the Cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sins and bridged the gap between God and people.
“There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only One who can bring us to God.” “Christ died once for our sins. An innocent person died for those who are guilty. Christ did this to bring you to God.”
God has provided the only way – we must make the choice.
4. We Must Receive Christ.
We must trust Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and receive Him as our Savior and serve Him as our Lord. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believed in His name.”
Would you like to give your life over to Jesus Christ right now? If so, you can pray to confess your sins and accept Jesus as your Saviour. Believe with all your heart and I can assure you that He who hears in secret will pardon and absolve you of all your sins.
