There is some innate drive for peace inside most people.
In opposition, there must be some force within us that is not peace. Otherwise, why would we have to seek it?
That opposing force inside us motivates us to try to find it. Now there are many ways we search for peace: something we may eat, something we may drink, something we may do. But over time—if you stop long enough to think it through—you realize that those things don’t last. What used to be fulfilling turns out to not be enough. We always want more. There is a never-ending desire to grasp hold and keep peace—a desire that is never satisfied, only paid off for a time. Who is in charge?
This inner turmoil is part of the wreckage of not heeding God’s instructions. Only Salvation can bring peace to our minds and spirit and end this turmoil of longing. But how do you get it?
The price for salvation is so high that it can only be a gift from someone that loved you enough to pay it for you. This is what God has done. Out of love for you, a great price was paid. The human race had a heavy debt—a debt of sin that separated us from God. Sin is another thing inside that drives us to unhealthy behavior. It is inside us; we don’t have to learn to make bad choices.
Salvation is this gift of reconciliation and forgiveness, which was made possible through God’s sacrifice for us. And to receive it, all we have to do is accept it—believing that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins and rose again from the grave, overcoming death and its hold on us.
To take hold of this grace, you can pray something like this:
“Lord, I know that I am a sinner. I want Jesus Christ to come into my life. I accept God’s merciful salvation. I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is Lord. He died for my sins and God raised Him from the dead so that I would not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus, please come into my life. Save me and guide me throughout my life. Thank you. Praise be to you, God. Thank you, Jesus.”
The Bible, God’s Word, tells us of even more good gifts that God has given to His people. Begin reading and learning who God is and what it means to be His child.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit” (Galatians: 5:22-25).
Some verses about God’s gracious salvation:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
“He did it to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus” (Romans 3:26).
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit” (1 Peter 3:18).
“God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
“I am the gate; whoever enters through Me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture” (John 10:9).
