God's Free Gift!

Jesus came not just for the wealthy or prestigious. He came for everyone. God sent his only Son — Jesus to the world as a gift, the best gift ever given to all mankind. We are all sinners, and God knew that there was nothing we could do to get rid of our sin, so God made a way for us to be forgiven. Romans 6:23 states, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” God sent his only son, the Lord Jesus Christ, into the world to willingly bleed and die on the cross for our sins — the sins of the entire world. John 3:16 declares, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus died and shed his blood to take away the sins of each and every single person. When we believe in Jesus Christ by turning to Him and trusting Him to forgive our sins, we will receive a new life — an everlasting life. In John 5:24, Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” Once we have been saved, we must read the Bible and pray each day in order to grow in the Lord. After trusting Jesus and asking him into our heart, we become a child of God and we will spend eternity with God in Heaven. I accepted God’s free gift of salvation when I was four years old, and my life has been completely changed since. He is always beside me even through the hardest parts of life. My prayer is that if you have never trusted Jesus into your heart, that you will take this moment to accept the free gift of salvation that is offered through Jesus Christ. Jesus came and took the punishment for the sins of each and every single person.
