Know Jesus?

No matter where you’re at, what you’ve done, or how far you’ve drifted, you’re not beyond the scope of God’s reach and love. You may be lost or you may have been down this road before, but whatever the situation, here are some simple steps to guide you in your pursuit of Jesus Christ.

1. God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life – abundant and eternal.

The Bible says…

We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

Romans 5:1

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

“I have come that they may have life, and they may have it more abundantly.”

John 10:10

2. There is a road block in life that we are all faced with everyday. That road block is called sin. Sin separates us from God. God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He gave us a will and a freedom of choice. We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today, and this results in separation from God.

The Bible says…

For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 2:5

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.”

1 Peter 3:18

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:8

3. Jesus died on the Cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.

The Bible says…

“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ.”

1 Timothy 2:5

“For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.”

1 Peter 3:18

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:8

4. We must trust Jess Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.

The Bible says …

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”

Revelation 3:20

“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

John 1:12

“That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

What will you do?

Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

Here is how you can receive Christ:

  • Admit your need (I am a sinner).
  • Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
  • Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the Cross and rose from the grave.
  • Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit. (Receive Him as Lord and Savior.)
