God's Greatest Gift of All

Are you still wondering what you are doing here, I mean in this life, on this planet, on this webpage?  Have you found the secret to your real purpose in life yet?  Do you know where you will be when you take your last breath?  The "Good News" is there is a gift from God that is your's for the receiving; a gift that will answer all those questions and so many more.  That is the "Gift" of His Son, Jesus; the center of controversy and the hope the ancients prophecied about and angels praise.  Jesus Christ is the only one, the holy one, the righteous one, who changes everything for eternity.

God's Holy Word gives us clear and indisputable reasons for His gift to us.  Let's take a look at some of those passages:

God Loves Us

John 3:16   "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."

Romans 5:8   "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

All Have Sinned

Romans 3:10  "As it is written: There is none righteous, no , not one."

Romans 3:23  "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

Jesus Died For Our Sins

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

I Corinthians 15:3-4  "For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,"

We May Be Saved Right Now

Revelation 3:20a  "Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him . . ."

Romans 10:13  "For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved."

John 1:12  "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name."

Are You Ready to Open the Door to Jesus?

If you believe what you have read and are willing to take Him at his word, the next step is to confess that you know you are a sinner.  You must reach out to receive God's gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and in your own words pray in the following manner:

Dear God,  I can no longer deny that I am a sinner and that I have sinned against you.  I realize now that there is nothing I can do to pay the debt for my sins.  I believe that Jesus Christ did that on my behalf when He died on the cross and shed His blood for me, to cleanse me from my sin.  I believe He rose again from the dead, conquering death, that I might have eternal life.  And now, I ask You to forgive my sins and come in, into my heart, into my life and make me new.  With all my heart, I know Jesus is Lord!

 If you prayed that prayer, won't you please contact us  and let us know so we can get some material into your hands and encourage you in your new walk.  Please use the contact us link.  Leave your name and phone number if you need someone to talk to.  God bless your decision making and give you peace.
