If you do a web search for the word peace, you will find many answers: an absense of conflict, to stop thinking about things that disturb you. But Jesus provides a different sort of peace. "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you..."  (John 14:27a)

It has been 2000 years since Jesus walked on Earth. Yet people from around the world STILL claim Him. Many willingly die or face persecution because of their faith in Jesus. Why is that? It is partly because the peace that Jesus gives transforms like no other.

In Matthew 11:19 Jesus says He is called "a friend of tax-gatherers and sinners". While He is sort of mocking His accusers, it is a true statement. In Mark 2:17 Jesus says: "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners." What about you? Are you righteous or are you a sinner?
There are many obstacles to someone having faith in Christ. Sometimes it is the questions people have, while others are troubled by a bad experience. Some self protect and don't want to risk. Others are convinced by the narrative of teachers and peers that evolution eliminates the need for God. Many people simply have a lack of knowledge of the Bible and God.

In John 8:31, 21 Jesus said to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."   Growing in knowledge of God and the Bible is a healthy step toward having a relationship with Christ.

The Bible is filled with insights into who God is and who we are. "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."  (Romans 6:23)

This verse tells us the bad news that our sin's penalty is death. In the Old Testament, animals were sacrificed in the place of people's sins. In the New Testament, Jesus was the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. Romans 6:23 also tells us the good news that God offers the free gift of eternal life! Are you ready to receive Jesus, who paid the the penalty for sin?

The following Old Testament passage refers to Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. “And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6b) Since His coming to Earth, Jesus, the Prince of Peace, has provided peace for those who follow Him.

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!
A Simple Prayer for Salvation
In 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.
