Have you found peace, hope and happiness in God?  Or are you searching for the answers in your job, your social life, your accomplishments?  If you’re looking for genuine and lasting happiness then God has the answers for you!
 
God created us for his glory.  God made us all in His own image so that we would image-forth, or reflect, His character and moral beauty (Isa. 43:7).
 
We have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.  None of us has loved or trusted or thanked or obeyed God as we ought (Rom. 3:23; 1:21-23).
 
We all deserve eternal punishment.  “The wages of sin is (eternal) death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 6:23).  Those who live lives of rebellion against the Lord will suffer eternal punishment (2 Thess. 1:9; Matt. 25:46).
 
In His great mercy God sent forth His only Son Jesus Christ to provide for sinners the way of eternal life.  “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us” (Gal. 3:13; cf., John 3:16; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18).
 
Eternal life is a free gift to all who will trust in Christ as Lord and Savior.  “By grace are you saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is a gift of God – not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Eph. 2:8-9;cf., Acts 16:31; Rom. 10:9; Gal. 2:20).
