As you watch the stories of those who have turned their lives over to Jesus, there is one common characteristic. That characteristic is that they find have found peace. You can't manufacture the peace that God gives.
Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Romans 5:1For you to have that peace you must embrace the Prince of peace. You must accept Jesus as YOUR Savior.
Confess your sins to God. He will not only listen, He will forgive you.
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9Central to Christianity is Jesus death on the cross as payment for our sins. He died so we could live!
Someone maybe asking, how do I accept Jesus? First you must accept something about yourself that is not taught in public school, in newspapers or even in psychology textbooks.
"for ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23We are all sinners, not just makers of mistakes. That means you have broken God's laws. You have affended God with your words, attitudes and actions. Likely, sometime in your past you have cursed God or used
"Jesus" as a curse word. This is breaking the third commandment. You are a sinner and because of that fact you are separated from God.
So many people think that they can do it on their on. They will just work hard, do good and God will forgive them. Wrong!!! There are no good works that you can do to help you look good in God's eyes!
"He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness..." Titus 3:5The only way into God's kingdom is God's way. Confess your sins to Him. Tell God you are sorry and ask Him to allow Jesus' death to be a substitute for your sin and selfishness. The way of reconciliation with God is not by way of your good deeds. Rather, it is by accepting Jesus payment for your sins. The God of the universe died for you, so you could be set free from all your junk. Cry out to Him!
You may be reviewing this page and find the peace Jesus offers seems very attractive. However, you cannot believe because you consider evolution to be true.

A Simple Prayer for SalvationIn a booklet the famous evangelist Billy Graham wrote a sample prayer for how anyone who chooses can enter into a relationship with Christ. He wrote:
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 Lord and Savior. In Jesus name. Amen.
Are you prepared for what will happen to you after you die? Suppose you died today and you went to meet God. Then He asked you, "Why should I allow you into my Heaven?" How would you answer Him? If your answer is something like, "I was pretty good and not too bad compared to some." In that case you would not be heading in the right direction.
Christianity is not like other systems of faith. For what other religion relies upon their God dying for them? None. Jesus, the Son of God, who is God, was sinless, died on a Roman cross as the substitution for our sins. We being sinful are therefore separated from God. We need a way to be united with God but we have no means to do so by ourselves. The Bible tells us that our good works are useless for paying for our own sins. "For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment;" Isaiah 64:6a God's plan offers His Son as the perfect sacrifice so that we could accept Jesus as our substitution, which allows us to be united with Him; our Maker, Redeemer and Friend!
