“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

Steps to Peace with God

Have you ever read "Steps to Peace with God"? It's a little pamphlet or -- often referred to as a tract -- published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

It helps to explain how it is possible to have peace with God.

Our pastor has encouraged us to read "Steps to Peace with God" once a day for the next seven days. We are going through a series on Bridging People to Christ... How to Clearly Communicate the Gospel.

So, I thought you might like to join me.

Today we will review Step 1: God's Purpose: Peace and Life.

Step 1: God's Purpose: Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience

peace and life—abundant and eternal.

The Bible says ...

"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." —Romans 5:1 (NIV)

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." —John 3:16 (NIV)

"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." —John 10:10 (NIV)

Why don't most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned for us to have?

Tomorrow, we'll get into Step 2: The Problem: Our Separation... However, if you want to jump ahead, stop by the Steps to Peace with God website. Blessings!

This will be an enjoyable series.

I started a new book and thought of you. It's called A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23. Have you read it? I picked it up at our library book sale this year. It is very good!
