How many times have you seen "free gift" and
thought that there was a catch somehow? I know I always think
that. The Free Gift I would like to tell you about is the free
gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
He died on the cross to pay the wages of sin for the
world. He paid the price for us. He offers this free gift of
forgiveness and salvation to everyone that will believe on His
name. The Bible says, "The wages of sin
is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our
Lord" Romans 6:23
Just as if God was handing you a wrapped gift, you
must accept and receive the gift. The Bible says
if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be
saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and
with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" Romans 10: 9-10
The Bible also says "For
whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"
To receive the free gift of Salvation
you must believe Jesus is the Son of God. Believe that he died on
the cross for your sins. Believe that God rose him from the
grave. Accept Jesus as your Savior. Pray a simple prayer and
ask God to forgive you of your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and
Savior. It is the most important decision you will ever make in
The Bible says
I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor
principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor
height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us
from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
Romans 8:38-39 What
a promise! With all that has happened in our nation and in the
world, it is good to know that NOTHING can separate us from God's love.
