Jesus Is The Way

STOP - and think about your life. Is it what you thought it would be? Yes, no, maybe? Maybe you are disappointed or maybe you couldn't be happier. Either way, God created you to know and have a personal relationship with Him, but SIN stops us from knowing Him "The wages of sin is death..." (Romans 6:23a). However, nothing would stop the love of God from providing a way for us to be reconciled with Him. "God demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us," (Romans 5:8).

Having a relationship with God is not based on church attendance, Bible knowledge, or right living; it is merely receiving the gift of salvation ("...the gift of God is eternal life (salvation) in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23b) and surrendering your will to His. Are you ready to stop living for yourself and start living for Him. "For 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," (John 3:16). "I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full" (John 10:10b).

To begin a relationship with God through Christ, Admit that you have sinned, Believe (trust) in Jesus, and Confess Him as your Lord and Savior. "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 are you waiting for? Don't allow anything to stop you from what God has created you for, a real and personal relationship with Him. If you have questions or would just like to talk to someone, email us.
