I want to thank http://www.cbn.com/stepstopeace/ for the information provided below. While I was attempting to design this page, I found theirs. Since I did not think I could do any better, and since the links at the end lead directly to helpful resources on their site, I decided to post it here. (I do not think they will mind since the page has a “share” button)
1. God’s Purpose…Peace and Life
|God loves you and wants you to know Him so He can fill you with peace and give you real life — forever.The Bible says::
Since God planned for us to have peace and real life right now, why are so many people hurting or angry inside?
2. Our Problem…Separation From God
|God created us in His own image so we can know Him personally and have a joy-filled life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him, but gave us a will and a freedom of choice. Since the beginning of time, we have chosen to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God and ends in misery.The Bible says:
The Bible says that disobeying God results in being separated from Him.
Our attempts can never unite us with God. Through the ages, people have tried many ways to bridge this gap and reach God — without success.
The Bible says:
There is only one way to reach God.
3. God’s Remedy…The Cross
|Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem. He is the only One who can bring us back to God. He died on the Cross and rose from the grave, paying the penalty for our sin and bridging the gap between God and people.The Bible says:
God has provided the only way — we must make the choice.
4. Our Response…Give Ourselves to Christ
|We must trust Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and determine to obey Him for the rest of our lives. That way we can know God and find peace again.The Bible says:
Is there any good reason why you cannot turn your life over to Jesus Christ right now?
How to give your life to Christ:
1. Admit you are a sinner and need forgiveness.
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
3. Through prayer, confess that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and commit to live for Him for the rest of your life.
