Don’t miss out on the FREE gift! God knows who you are and He has a FREE gift for you. He cares about you! He knows your name and everything about you. In fact, you were created to know God in a personal way, like a relationship between a parent and a child. But we have a problem which is that we have all done things that are wrong which is called sin and that causes separation between us and God. This leaves each of us felling guilt, shame, empty, alone, and hopeless. But God LOVES you and He desires to make you whole and give you a new life with meaning and purpose.
Now, some people think if you try to live as ‘good person’ you can earn favor with God, forcing Him to overlook your wrongs and make you right so you can enter Heaven. But the truth is the end result of sin is always death, and a place of eternal separation from God called Hell. But God LOVES you and He made the only way for us to be right with Him through sending His Son Jesus who was without sin to die in our place on the cross. Being fully God and Man, Jesus paid our debt of sin so that we can be forgiven, and He rose from the grave, proving He made a way for us to be right with God and to be with Him forever in Heaven.
After this life its eternity, and each one of us are only one heartbeat away, one breath from our very last one. As time passes we are all one day closer to eternity than we were yesterday, but God LOVES you and wants you to have confidence knowing that you will spend eternity with Him. We can’t earn this salvation but only receive it by trusting in Jesus Christ and the work He has done. If you want this FREE gift then believe you are a sinner, that Jesus died for your sins, ask Him for His forgiveness and then receive His promise. If your want to make Jesus your Savior, and make Him the Lord or Master of your life, we suggest praying the following prayer to receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life:
“God, I realize that I’m a sinner and that my sin separates me from You. I believe that you love me and sent Jesus to die on the cross for my sins, and that He was buried and rose from the dead. Lord, please forgive me from all my sins as I surrender my life to You now. Help me from this day forward to follow you and put your Spirit within me so that I may do your will. God, I thank You for loving me, and I thank You for being my Savior, my Lord, and my Friend. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
