Eternal life is the gift of God, according to the Bible. Ephesians 2:8,9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Is it any wonder that there is no assurance of heaven by being religious or doing good works? On the contrary the Bible makes it clear that we are not good enough, no matter how sincere we may be.
Romans 3:10 “There is none righteous, no, not one:“ 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” A gift cannot be earned, it must be received.
John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:“ Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.“
Dear Friend, recognize your sinful condition. Consider how that it has separated you from a righteous, holy God and listen to His solution. Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus Christ, God’s Son took upon Himself the punishment that should have fallen upon you and me. He declares if we will trust His precious blood as the full payment for our sin, we will be given the gift of God. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Please don’t delay. None of us are promised tomorrow. Settle the single greatest issue that you will ever face in your life. Accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your own personal Saviour today.
You can know for certain where you will spend eternity...
