Whether this is your first time, or your hundredth time exploring what life is all about, we’d love to help you find peace with God.
Step 1 – God Loves Me
The first step is know that God loves you – he is crazy about you! He created you and wants you to know Him and love Him back.
The bible says “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.
God loves you so much that he gave his Son Jesus for you.
Step 2 – I Have Sinned
The second step is acknowledging the problem! Nobody likes to talk about it but we have all said, done and thought bad things and lived for ourselves instead of for God. The bible calls this “sin” and tells us that it separates us from God.
“It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.” Isaiah 59:2
This is the bad news. And if you don’t find peace with God in this life, you will be separated from Him for eternity too.
Step 3 – Jesus Died For Me
Here’s the good news! We don’t have to fix the problem ourselves, because Jesus already did it for us. We find peace with God through Jesus.
The bible tells us that “the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
We earned death but Jesus died for us – in our place – so we get a free gift from God of eternal life.
“Christ died for our sins … He was buried … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
The good news continues because Jesus was raised from the dead – which is what Christians celebrate at Easter! Jesus is alive!
Step 4 – I Need To Decide To Live For God
Would you like to receive the free gift of God’s forgiveness, to have peace with God and eternal life? We cannot earn it by doing good things, we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
All you have to do is acknowledge that you are a sinner and believe that Jesus died for your sins and was raised from the dead. Then you must ask His forgiveness. It’s got to be real to you – you need to turn away from your sins and turn back to God and decide to live your life for him – that’s called repentance.
We suggest praying the prayer below to accept Jesus as your Saviour.
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I am sorry for ignoring you and for hurting you and others. Please forgive me. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Saviour and follow Him as Lord. Please help me to live my life for you. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”
