God's Gift to You
The best gift you can ever receive in your life is free. You can get it right now wherever you are. Check it out for yourself. Take your Bible and look at Ephesians 2:8. It makes you a promise that the "gift" is from God and is "free" Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
The free gift we have for you is found in God’s Holy word, the Bible! It is the gift of eternal life in the kingdom of heaven. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, than whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
To receive the gift of everlasting life, we must first recognize ourselves as sinners. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
The payment for sin is death (or hell). However, the free gift of heaven is offered to all who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
The greatest gift ever offered to anyone, is awaiting those who are willing to accept it. This gift has been paid for and there are no strings attached. It is absolutely free ! This gift is eternal life in heaven and salvation from the lake of fire that everyone faces if they are not willing to accept this free gift from God.
This gift can be yours if you believe in your heart that Christ died for your sins. Simply pray and ask Him to forgive you. Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
The Bible is very clear that the only possible way to heaven is Jesus. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but"by me".
This same fact is found again in Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Do you have peace about where you will go when you die?
If not, here is a sample prayer that you might pray if you truly believe in your heart that Christ died for you and you want to make Him the Lord of your life : “ Lord Jesus, I realize that I am a sinner. I believe that you died in my place for my sins. Please forgive me. I now trust you alone to save me and to give me eternal life in heaven. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
