Will you give your life to Jesus?

The greatest decision you can ever make is to follow Jesus.

If you were to read all of the Bible, you would quickly discover a story that is woven throughout its pages. Today, this story still impacts us. This story is the gospel, and the gospel is good news for us. Pastors and theologians describe this grand story in various ways. Below, we explain God’s story using a helpful tool called 3 Circles.


3 Circles


We see beauty, purpose, and evidence of God’s design around us. The Bible tells us that God originally planned a world that worked perfectly—where everything and everyone fit together in harmony. God made each of us with a purpose—to worship and walk with him (Genesis 1:31; Psalm 19:1).

Life doesn’t work when we ignore God and His original design for our lives. We selfishly insist on doing things our own way. The Bible calls this sin. We all sin and distort the original design. The consequences of our sin is separation from God—in this life and for all eternity (Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23a).


Sin leads to a place of brokenness. When we realize life is not working, we begin to look for a way out. We tend to go in many different directions trying different things to figure it out on our own. Brokenness leads to a place of realizing a need for something greater (Romans 1:25; Proverbs 14:12).

Repent & Believe
Simply hearing the Gospel is not enough. We must admit our sinful brokenness and stop trusting in ourselves. We must ask God to forgive us—turning from sin to trust only in Jesus. Believing we receive new life through Jesus and God turns our lives in a new direction (Mark 1:15, Ephesians 2:8–9; Romans 10:9).


At this point we need a remedy. Because of His love, God did not leave us in our brokenness. Jesus, God in human flesh, came to us and lived perfectly according to God’s design. He took our sin, paying the penalty of our sin by his death on the cross. Jesus was then raised from the dead, rescuing and restoring our relationship with God (John 3:16; Colossians 2:14).

Recover & Pursue
When God restores our relationship to him, we being to discover meaning and purpose in a broken world. Now we can pursue God’s Design in all areas of our lives (Philippians 2:13; Ephesians 2:10).
