Why We Need Jesus And The Church
Bridging the Gap:
These four steps share what the Bible says is the truth about God, ourselves, and our need for Jesus.
Step 1 - God’s Love and His plan: God created us in His own image to have a close relationship with Him and to experience a full life assured of His love.
Step 2 - Our Problem: Separation from God: We chose to disobey God and go our own way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Step 3 - God’s Remedy: The Cross: Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem. He died on the cross and rose from the grave, paying the penalty for our sin and bridging the gap between God and people.
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ.”
(1 Timothy 2:5)
“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Step 4 - Our Response
“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me
has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.”
Is there any reason why you shouldn’t cross over to God’s side and be certain of eternal life? If you pray to God, trusting in Christ, the Bible says that you can be sure you have eternal life.
What to Pray:
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as the Lord and Savior of my life. In Your name. Amen.
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
Life in Christ:
This is just the beginning of your relationship with Jesus. New life in Him will involve:
1. Reading your Bible every day to get to know Christ better.
2. Talking to God in prayer every day.
3. Worshiping with others in a church where Christ is preached.
