You CAN have peace. And you can KNOW that you are saved. It's simple.
1) God's Plan: Peace and Life
God loves you and wants you to experience His peace and life. Really. He DOES.
The Bible says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
2) Our Problem: Separation
Being at peace with God isn't automatic, because by nature you are separated from God.
The Bible says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
3) God's Remedy: The Cross
God's love bridges the gap of separation between God and you. When Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave, He paid the penalty for your sins.
The Bible says, "He personally carried the load of our sins in His own body when He died on the cross." 1 Peter 2:24
4) Our Response: Receive Jesus Christ
You cross the bridge into God's family when you receive Christ by personal invitation.
The Bible says, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name." John 1:12
TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST, YOU NEED TO DO FOUR THINGS:
1) ADMIT that you need Him: "I am a sinner."
2) REPENT and be willing to turn from your sin.
3) BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross.
4) RECEIVE through prayer Jesus Christ into your heart and life.
Christ says, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in." Revelation 3:20
The Bible says, "Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13
Pray this prayer out loud: "Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I'm a sinner, and I need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins and that God raised You from the dead. I invite You now to come into my heart and my life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me!
The very moment you commit your life to Jesus Christ, the truth of His Word instantly comes to pass in your spirit. Now that you're born again, there's a brand new you!
