God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life. Sin separates you from God and from the peace and life He wants you to experience. God has provided a way for you to have your sins forgiven and to enjoy peace and life. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for your sins, but you must receive God's free gift of peace and life by having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Here is how you can receive Christ:
- Admit your need (I am a sinner). Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
- Be willing to turn from your sins. Proverbs 28:13 says, "He who hides his sins does not prosper, but he who confesses them finds mercy."
- Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him, you will be saved."
- Receive Jesus into your life as Savior and Lord. Romans 10:13 says, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
