A Free Gift...

The free gift that I’m talking about is Eternal Life in Heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

We all have sin in our hearts. We were all born with a sin nature. If you’ve ever told a lie, that makes you a liar. If you’ve ever taken anything that wasn’t yours, it makes you a thief. We all have done wrong things in our lives. We’re all sinners.

The first step in accepting God‘s Free Gift is to admit that you are a sinner.

Romans 6:23a says "...The wages of sin is death..." Just as you receive a paycheck for the job you do, when we sin there is a payoff. That payoff is eternal separation from God in Hell.

Next, understand that you deserve death for your sin.

Romans 6:23b "...But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

This gift is free for us to accept, but it cost Jesus His life. He loved you and me so much though, that He was willing to die on the cross for our sins. He paid the sin-debt that we owed. You can't earn this gift, but you must reach out and receive it.

 Ask God to forgive you and save you. Just pray this simple prayer or one like it. “Lord, Jesus, I know I’m a sinner. I ask you to please come into my heart and be my Savior.”
Just speak from your heart.

Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth His love for us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us."
Romans 10:13 "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved!"

If you’ve asked Jesus to come into your heart and save you, you are now a child of God! The Bible tells us that once we’re saved, we’re always saved. No one can take that away from you, and you know now, where you will go when you die one day. Now, you live for Christ. Join a good church that preaches from the Bible, and spend your life serving Christ and living for Him. If you have accepted Christ as your Savior, please let me know, so I can rejoice with you!!
