God loves you and wants you to live in peace with Him and to receive eternal life.
Step 2: God did not make us robots to mindlessly love and obey Him. Instead He gave us a will and freedom of choice.
But, like Adam, we often choose to go our own selfish ways (read Genesis 2-3). This side of our nature is called sin,
and it separates us from God.
Step 3: Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem of separation from God. He died on the cross and rose from the
grave to pay the penalty for our sin -- completely bridging the gap between us and God.
Step 4: We can receive Jesus Christ when we believe in His message and trust in Him alone to save us.
