Jesus Christ said, "I Am The Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father, except Through Me!" John 14:6.
God Himself came to earth as a human being to bring us back to Himself. If any other way would have worked, Jesus Christ would not have had to come. The Way is a Person!
JESUS HAS ALREADY TAKEN CARE OF YOUR SIN PROBLEM!
"The wages of sin is death, But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Rom. 6:23
God did this for us because He loves us and wants us to know Him.
"God demonstrated (proved) His love for us in that while we were still separated from God by sin, Christ died for us." Rom. 5:8
"God is on one side and all people are on the other side, and Christ Jesus is between them to bring them together, by giving His life for all mankind." I Tim. 2:5
God has already done His part to restore our relationship to Him. He took the initiative. now He waits for each of us to individually accept what He has done for us.
WHAT DOES GOD WANT ME TO DO?
1. Admit that God has not been first place in your life and ask Him to forgive your sins.
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from every wrong." I John 1:9
2. Believe that Jesus died to pay for your sins and that He rose again on Easter, and is alive today
"If you confess that Jesus is your Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name (Jesus) by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
3. Accept God's free gift of salvation. Don't try to earn it.
"For it is by grace you are saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
Our relationship to God is not restored by anything we do, but on the basis of what Jesus already did for us!
4. Invite Jesus to come into your life to be the director (Lord) of your life.
"To all who receive Him, He gives the right to become children of God. All we need to do is to trust Him to save us. All those who believe this are reborn! - not a physical rebirth but from the will of God!" John 1:12-13
"Jesus says, 'Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in'" Rev. 3:20
