Need Peace?

I don’t believe you’ve landed here by accident.

Instead you’re here by divine appointment.

If you’re searching for peace, hope, joy, purpose, or for life itself, you are in the right place at this moment in your life.

You can have a personal relationship with God and experience all that you are searching for.

But that only comes through His Son, Jesus Christ.

God’s Word, the Bible, says this: “We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:1)

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father [God] but through Me.” (John 14:6)

Need Peace?  The Plan

The God who created you loves you.

Because of His great love for you, God wants you to experience His peace and life.

God’s Word says: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten
Son [Jesus}, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”
(John 3:16).

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10).

“I have loved you with an everlasting love.”

Jeremiah 31:3

Need Peace? The Problem

Being at peace with holy God isn’t automatic because humanity — through the very freedom of choice that God gives us — chose to go their own way, rejecting Him in the process.

We’ve all failed to reach God’s standard — in our thoughts, actions, and words.

God’s Word says: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

The result of our sin is spiritual death — separation from God.

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 

Romans 6:23

Need Peace? There is Great News!

God sent His Son Jesus to die for our sins.

Jesus literally took our place on the cross to deliver us from the death penalty we deserved.

God’s Word says: “He [Jesus] personally carried the load of our sins in his own
body when he died on the cross.” (1 Peter 2:24)

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

“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 there’s even more great news! Jesus conquered death by rising from the grave, and He lives forever.

“Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

“For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Romans 5:10

Need Peace? Respond to God’s Gift Through Jesus

Jesus bridged the gap between holy God and sinful man.

His gift of peace and life is available to all.

Each person has a choice to make. We must choose whether to accept the gift or reject it.

The Bible, God’s Word, 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)

While we would all like a manual of what we need to do to be saved, apart from faith in Jesus, there is no other way.  We can’t earn the gift. All we can do is accept God’s grace through faith in His Son Jesus.(Acts 16:29-31)

“Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.”

Acts 16:31

If you’re ready to accept God’s free gift of grace, simply speak to Him from a sincere heart.

You can use the sample prayer below or use your own words.

Heavenly Father, I realize I’m a sinner, incapable of reaching You through anything I can do. I also know my sin has separated me from You. Thank You for loving me enough to send Jesus to die in my place and take the death sentence I deserved.  Thank You for raising Him to life, so I can also have eternal and abundant life, along with the peace I so desperately need. I place my faith in Jesus to save me and forgive my sins so I can be in right relationship with You. I choose today to trust Jesus as my Lord and Savior. In His name I pray, Amen.
