Reaching people where they are with the Truth


Are you tired of relationships that fall apart?
Have your friends let you down?
Is your life just not what you want it to be?
Is the emptiness you feel just too great to bear?
If any of these questions express how you feel, there is Someone who can help.
Your greatest a Savior!
Here's what you need to do......

1.     Realize that you do wrong things. - Romans 3:23 says "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God".  Everyone makes mistakes (sins).

2.     Those wrong things must be paid for. - Romans 6:23 tells us "The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."  Wages are what you get for what you earn, which means that our sins deserve death.  But God sent His Son, Jesus, to earth, to live and then to die for you so that you wouldn't have to pay for that sin.

3.     Agree with God about the wrong in your life.  Confess that to Him.  Ask Him into your heart.  Romans 10:9-10 says "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.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."

4.     Once you have made this decision, He promises to come into your heart.  Revelation 3:20 tells us that Christ stands at our heart's door and that if we will open the door He will come in.  He comes in as guest and remains as host.  He promises never to leave nor forsake us.  He will only come into your heart if you invite Him.  He is a gentleman who respects our ability to exercise free will.

John 14:6 states "I am the Way, the Truth and the man comes to the Father(God) except by Me".  There is no other way to Heaven and salvation.  Jesus is the answer to everything.
