God Gives Us Our Gift
We are not able to save ourselves, no matter how many good works we have done, or the sins we have not committed. Eternal life is God’s special gift to us. Scripture tells us our only way of salvation is through Jesus Christ, our Lord. What is the prerequisite of our gift? Agreeing with the testimony of Scripture: (Romans 6:22-23) “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life, for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus has paid our sin debt in full.
Our sin with all our guilt has been removed by the supreme sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. There is no sin so bad that our redemption will be denied – the only exception is the rejection of Jesus.
God’s special gift to us covers every sin from our past, present, and future. So what is our obligation to God? Nothing; except to believe in and accept His precious Son Jesus. There are no other conditions; this gift is ours forever. God’s Word, His promises, and the presence of His Holy Spirit within us confirm this truth of our eternal life thanks to Christ.
How you feel will not confirm your salvation. Believing what God says will. Read (Acts 16:31) “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved –you and your household.” This is an important moment for you. Please bow your head right now and thank God for His precious gift. He loves us so much He gave His ONLY Son just for you and me!
Jesus is; freely given; fully sufficient; and forever yours!
