sorrow, depression, fear, hopelessness or emptiness? Each of these

SIX STEPS TO PEACE, JOY
AND ETERNAL LIFE
yourself and God. You must be willing to admit that you have done
wrong and that God will judge you for your sins. The Bible says
that “all have sinned” and certainly that includes you.
(Romans 3:23). Some examples of sin are lying, stealing,
cheating, hating, taking drugs, having sex outside of marriage and
so on. Though each of these activities is wrong, the real sin
lying at the heart of them all is not being right with God. The
Bible says that every human being will have to stand before Jesus
Christ and give an account. Those who have refused to follow Jesus
will be cast alive into the lake of fire which burns forever and
ever (Revelation 20: 10-15).
you and died for your sins so that you wouldn’t have to go to the
lake of fire. The Bible says that “while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Jesus understands our
human weaknesses and has made a way for us to escape the judgment
to come. He is willing to give each of us a second chance to live
for him by forgiving our sins and filling us with his own Spirit.
must be sorry for your sins and must make a firm decision within
your heart to believe in Jesus, to live by his Word, and to do the
best you can to keep yourself from further sin. The Bible says
that God “now commands all men everywhere to repent”
(Acts 17:30). Repentance is not optional. It is impossible to
be forgiven and receive eternal life unless you are willing to
turn away from your sins. If you are ready to live apart from sin,
then Jesus is ready to help you.
of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38). This is the first act of faith
every person must submit to in order to show their desire to be
obedient to God. Jesus will respond to this act of faith by
forgiving every sin you have ever committed. Jesus said, “He
who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16).
If you believe that Jesus died for your sins and have made up you
mind that you want to live God’s way, then you ought to be
baptized in the name of Jesus Christ as soon as possible.
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38). The
Holy Spirit is the power and presence of Jesus Christ coming to
live right inside of you to help you live right and to fill you
with life everlasting. The Bible says, “He who raised Christ
from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through
his Spirit who dwells in you” (Romans 8:11). What a
wonderful promise! Just as Jesus was raised from the dead and is
now alive for evermore, so will it be for you once you have been
filled with his Holy Spirit.

must also begin reading the Bible for yourself and spending time
each day seeking the Lord to guide you into his perfect will.
Salvation is not a one time occurrence; it is a way of life. It
begins when you repent of your sins, believe in Christ, get
baptized in water, and receive the Holy Spirit. But if you are to
remain right with God after your baptism, you must learn to live
your life his way.
Once you have followed these six steps and have entered into
your own personal relationship with God, you may still face many
difficult and painful situations in your life. But with Jesus
Christ, no matter how difficult life may become, you will always
have plenty of peace, joy and hope on the inside…
give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am
gentle and lowly of heart, and you shall find rest for your souls.”
Matthew 11: 28-29
If you are ready to say goodbye to guilt, anxiety and emptiness,
then make up your mind right now that you are going to place
yourself in the hands of the only true Savior, Jesus Christ. Come to
him repenting and believing, and be baptized in his glorious name
for the forgiveness of every sin, and he will fill you with his
wonderful Holy Spirit.
