The Free Gift of God

Salvation is a wonderful blessing, and knowing that your sins are forgiven and that you are on your way to Heaven is the greatest gift of all.

One day when we stand before God, we will stand before Him naked with nothing to hide out shame. What will be our merit or reason God should let us into heaven?

Philippians 3:9
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith”

Are you found in Christ? At the end of this life that is what is going to really matter. Is your sins washed away by the precious blood of Jesus Christ? Are you clothed by His righteousness?

Romans 5:18
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”

We all have an inherited sinful nature which means we will all one day physically die. More than just a physical death, we will all one day stand before God and give an account of our life (Hebrews 9:27). What have we done with God’s Way to eternal life? God’s Way is His Son, Jesus.

The Bible says that if we believe on the Son then we have eternal life, but if we do not believe then we do not have eternal life, but God’s wrath abides on us (John 3:36). In Romans 5 we read that if we have not received the Lord Jesus as our Saviour, then we are God’s enemy and will one day face the consequences for our sin (Romans 5:10).

How do we become a Christian? We place our faith in Christ’s finished work (Hebrews 10:10). If we believe that Jesus Christ is God, and that He died for your sins. If you believe in your heart that Jesus is the only way to heaven and that without Jesus we would be on your way to hell. Then call out to him today (Romans 10:9)!

Romans 10:12-13
“For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Have you called out to Christ to save you? If not, then today is your opportunity to put your faith in Him. I know this for sure, He wants to save you.

If you called out to God for salvation today, would you tell us so that we can help you to know more about the God that saves us. Click here to let us know of your decision.
