God said "do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
YOU ARE NOT ALONE, NOR WITHOUT HOPE
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.
THERE IS FREEDOM FROM CONFUSION
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace...
1 Corinthians 14:33
THERE IS HOPE TO OVERCOME EVIL
Jesus said, "The devil comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly."
THe gospel is about a RELATIONSHIP
NOT A RELIGION
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
FREEDOM AWAITS YOU!
In John 8:36 Jesus makes a wonderful statement of victory. He says, “So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.”
God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life.
God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
Why is it that most people are not experiencing the
We were created to have fellowship with God, but because of our stubborn self-will, we chose to go our own way, and our fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is what the Bible calls sin.
All of us sin, and our sin has separated us from God.
WE ARE SINFUL
All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
WE ARE SEPARATED
The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)
Death is spiritual separation from God.
This image illustrates that God is holy and people are sinful. A great gulf separates us. We are continually trying to reach God and the abundant life through our own efforts, such as living a good life, philosophy, or religion – but we inevitably fail.
Jesus Christ is God's only provision for our sin. Through Him we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives.
HE DIED IN OUR PLACE
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us
JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD &
DEFEATED DEATH FOR YOU!
Christ died for our sins ... He was buried ... He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures ... He appeared to Peter, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred. 1 Corinthians 15:3-6
Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. (John 14:6)
JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GOD
God has bridged the gulf that separates us from Him by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins.
We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives.
WE MUST RECEIVE CHRIST
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).
By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).
When we receive Christ, we experience a new birth.
WE RECEIVE CHRIST BY PERSONAL INVITATION
Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him...” (Revelation 3:20)
Receiving Christ involves turning to God from self (repentance) and trusting Christ to come into our lives to forgive our sins and to make us what He wants us to be. Just to agree intellectually that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for your sins is not enough. Nor is it enough to have an emotional experience. You receive Jesus Christ by faith, as an act of the will.
It's YOUR Choice
"...I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore
that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days;..."
YOU HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE
YOU CAN CONTINUE TO LIVE YOUR LIFE ON YOUR TERMS IN YOUR OWN WAY
IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SAVIOR (JESUS) YOU ARE STILL IN YOUR SIN AND REMAIN SEPARATED FROM GOD NOW AND FOR ETERNITY
You can choose Christ
You give Jesus control of your life and choose to live for Him as Lord. You accept that he’s forgiven you and experience God’s love now for eternity.
you receive God's power in his spirit to live and overcome life's challenges
You don't need a fancy prayer, have it all together, or be in a certain church to know
Jesus as your Savior.
Wherever you are,
He will meet you there.
Just be real...speak to Him in your own words
Admit that you have sinned and need a Savior
Ask JESUS to give you a new life in Him. Turn away from your old life and embrace a new life where you are saved by grace through faith in Jesus
Commit to living your life for Christ. It's not going to be perfect, and it's not always easy, but His grace will get you through. You are also not going to have all the answers, none of us do. BUT as you seek Him, God will lead you forward into this new life
You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer. Prayer is talking to God. God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart.
The following is a suggested prayer.
If this prayer expresses the desire of your heart, then you can pray this prayer right now and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.
Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins and for forgiving me as far as the east is from the west. thank you for saving my life now and for eternity. even though I have so many questions and there is so much i don't understand right now, i know that My way doesn't work very well, and I need a new life in you. I ask you now to help me and live inside me. cover me with your spirit now as i leave my old ways and embrace you as my life, my lord and my savior. Amen.
