A Gift for You
When someone gives you a gift, they express their love for you.
If God would offer you the most amazing gift you’ve ever received,
would you be interested in considering it?
The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
HE IS MORE THAN JUST A MAN.
Jesus said He was God (John 10:30). He proved it by His life, His words, His miracles, His sinlessness, and His perfect love. “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)” (Ephesians 2:4–5). “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” (John 3:16).
What the Bible says about Heaven
There are big questions that haunt all of us. What happens when I die? Is there a life after death? Where will I spend eternity? The single most important question that you will ever answer is this: “If I were to die today, would I spend eternity in Heaven with God?” Your relationship to Jesus Christ is the central answer to that question.
The Bible tells us in I John 5:13, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…” The simple truth is God wants you to know where you’re going! So, here it is in a nutshell:
What's wrong with this world?
Have you ever wondered where all the suffering, evil, and death in the world come from? God answers this in Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”
My biggest mistake when I don’t know my way is that I don’t want to admit that I am lost! This is called pride. In order to find the way to eternal life with God, I must admit that I am lost in sin. Romans 5:12 teaches us that since Adam and Eve, the first man and woman on earth, a sin nature has been present in all people. Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Sin is any act contrary to God’s laws and commandments, and those sins that I have committed separate me from God. Whenever I have been lost, I have paid some type of penalty. I have been late to a special event and, on occasion, I have received a speeding ticket. Sin also has a penalty. 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 “wage” or payment for our sin is spiritual death and eternal separation from God.
