Find Peace With God
Your relationship with God is the most important relationship you can have.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH US?
Our relationship with God has been broken by sin.
We have all made choices showing we are inclined to be:
Passively indifferent to God. (Isaiah 53:6)
Or actively opposed to God. (John 3:19-20)
The result of our choices to resist or ignore God results in separation from God. (Ephesians 2:1, Romans 5:12)
WHAT DID GOD DO FOR US?God has provided the solution for our broken relationship.
Jesus Christ came to do what we could not do for ourselves. (John 3:16)
He came into the world to bring us to his Father. (John 14:6)
He died in our place to pay the penalty for our sin. (1 Peter 3:18)
He rose from the dead to show that his claims were true. (1 Corinthians 15:3-6)
WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO?
We must accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
Our own efforts to earn God’s acceptance are inadequate. (Titus 3:5)
We must admit our need for forgiveness. (Romans 3:23)
We must receive Christ and his offer of salvation as a gift. (John 1:12, Ephesians 2:8-9)
WHERE DO WE BEGIN?
A personal relationship with God begins today.
You can begin your personal relationship with God by putting your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. You may find it helpful to express your new faith in words similar to these:

2. God promises to never leave you. (Hebrews 13:5)
3. God has forgiven all of your sins, past, present, and future. (Colossians 2:13-14)
