The Gift

One of the Bible’s greatest truths is that Salvation is given to us by God as a free gift. We can’t buy it, we can’t even earn it by our own good works. The Bible puts it this way:

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

There are to two important facts about God’s gift of salvation. First, it is a costly gift. Think of it this way. Suppose you wanted to express your love for someone by giving them a very fine gift. What would you have to do? Well, you’d first have to go to the store and buy it—and the finer the gift, the more it would cost you. To the receiver, it is a free gift, but it wasn’t free on your part.

The same is true with God’s gift of salvation. To us it is free, but it cost God the life of His Son. The reason is because on the cross Jesus Christ became the final sacrifice for our sins. He paid for our salvation with His blood.

But the Bible also tells us a second truth: Like any other gift, God’s gift of salvation doesn’t become ours until we accept it. Just as we can refuse the gift someone offers us, so we can refuse God’s gift of salvation. But why would we? Don’t let this happen to you, but by faith reach out and accept Christ into your life today.

For we have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, “Jesus is Lord,” you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

Say this prayer if you are willing to accept this gift freely given

Heavenly father , I come to you to day , I confess I am a sinner  and I ask your forgiveness. Jesus, I accept you into my life today as my Lord and Saviour , wash me with your blood , write my name in the book of life and make me your own. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus name . Amen!
