God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer 29:11)

Many of us are not experiencing the abundant life, which God has planned for each one of us.

God wants to change that.


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 life.

The Bible says: because of our Lord Jesus Christ, we live at peace with God (Romans 5:1).

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 (John 3:16).

Jesus said: "I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest" (John 10:10).

Since God planned for us to have peace and abundant life, why are so many people hurting or angry inside?



Our Problem...Separation From God

God created us in His own image so we can know Him personally and have a full life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him, but gave us a will and a freedom to choose.

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 and ends in misery and death.

The Bible says: All of us have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God and His holiness (Romans 3:23).

The result of unforgiven sin is death. But God's gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

Disobeying God results in being separated from Him.

Our Attempts: They 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: Adam sinned, and that sin brought death into the world. Now everyone has sinned, and so everyone must die (Romans 5:12).

You may think you are on the right road and still end up dead (Proverbs 14:12).

There is only one way to reach God.


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: There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only one who can bring us to God (1 Timothy 2:5).

Christ died once for our sins. An innocent person died for those who are guilty. Christ did this to bring you to God (1 Peter 3:18).

But God showed how much he loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful (Romans 5:8).

God has provided the only way -- we must make the choice.


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: So you will be saved, if you honestly say, Jesus is Lord, and if you believe with all your heart that God raised Him from death. God will accept you and save you, if you truly believe this. (Romans 10:9-10)

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.

What to Pray

Dear Heavenly Father

I thank you for loving me. I thank you that you loved me so much that you made a way to save me. Lord I admit that I am a sinner. I need your forgiveness. I admit that I have lived my own way and there by sinned against You. Father God I believe that You sent Your own Son Jesus Christ to died for my sins. I believe that Jesus conquered death and rose from the grave to give me life. I believe that Jesus is the only way to God. I accept the gift of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. I surrender my life to you Lord Jesus and ask you to come and live your life in me. I ask you to fill me with your Holy Spirit that I may live my life for You all the days of my life.
