Searching for answers ... to fill an emptiness inside, to questions that are hard to form? Do you feel separated from God?
Know God and your life will be transformed!
Law 1: God loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life.
God's Love: "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
God's Plan: (Jesus speaking) "I came that they might have life, and
might have it abundantly" (John 10:10)
Why is it that most people are not experiencing the abundant life?
Law 2: Man is sinful and separated from God. Therefore, he cannot know and
experience God's love and plan for his life.
Man is Sinful: "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of
God" (Romans 3:23)
Man was created to have fellowship with God; but, because of his own
stubborn self-will, he chose to go his own independent way and fellowship with
God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active
rebellion or passive indifference, is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin.
Man is Separated: "The wages of sin is death" (spiritual
separation from God) (Romans 6:23)
Law 3: Jesus Christ is God's only provision for man's sin. Through Him
you can know and experience God's love and plan for your life.
He Died In Our Place: "God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
He Is the Only Way to God: "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the
truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me'" (John
Law 4: We must individually receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; then we
can know and experience God's love and plan for our lives.
We Must Receive Christ: "As many as received Him, to them He gave the
right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name"
We Receive Christ Through Faith: " By grace you have been saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of
works that no one should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9)
When We Receive Christ, We Experience a New Birth (Read John 3:1-8)
We Receive Christ Through Personal Invitation: (Jesus speaking)
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and
opens the door, I will come into him" (Revelation 3:20)
You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer (prayer is talking
with God). God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words, as He
is with the attitude of your heart. The following is a suggested prayer:
Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open
the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for
forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my
life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.
If you have prayed this prayer, please contact Pastor Jeff and he will

the family of God!
