Steps to Peace with God

Seven Steps that will change your life FOREVER!!!!

1. Realize that God loves you and wants you to share eternal life with Him, through His only Son, Jesus Christ.

     "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

2. Understand that God has a wonderful plan for you.

      "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." - John 10:10

3. Realize that no matter how "Good" you are through your own works, you will never be good enough to live forever in the presence of God.

      "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." - Romans 3:23

4. Understand that God loves you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on a cross for the redemption of your sins.

       "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." - Romans 5:8

5. Realize that the sin in your life will lead to eternal separation from God. You must also realize that you can be cleansed of the sin in your life, and born into God's family by believing in Jesus and receiving Him into your life simply by faith. 

        "For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."  - Romans 6:23

6. To be spared from eternal death, you must be "Saved". To be saved, you simply need to ask Jesus to come into your life, and do your best to follow Him.

         "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."   - Romans 10:13

          To ask Jesus into your heart, you need to say a prayer (and really mean what you pray) something like this:

            "Dear Lord Jesus, I know I have sinned and do not deserve eternal life in and of myself. Thank you for dying on the cross for me. Please forgive me of my sin and come into my life right now. I turn to you and place all my trust in you for my eternal salvation. I accept your free gift of eternal life and forgiveness right now. Thank you for coming into my life and saving me."

7. Join a church and get involved in it's ministries. It is important to be with other Christians to learn more about God's plan for your life, to strengthen your faith, and to give praise and honor to God for all the great things He is doing.
