GOD’S FREE GIFT
God has a free gift for you. It is the gift of eternal life. It is not something you can earn or buy. He offers it because He loves you.
Why do you need this gift?
Romans 3:10-12 – As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous – not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.”
Romans 3:23 – For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.
Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
Why did God give us this gift?
Romans 5:8 – But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
How do I receive this gift?
Romans 10:9-10 – If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
Romans 10:13 – Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
What does this gift do?
Romans 5:1 – Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.
Romans 8:1 – So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:38-39 – And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
When should I receive this gift?
2 Corinthians 6:2 – For He says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor; now is the day of salvation.
Hebrews 3:7-8 – So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts…”
If you would like to receive God’s gift of eternal life, you can respond in this way:
1. Admit you are a sinner.
2. Understand that as a sinner, you deserve death.
3. Believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save you from sin and death.
4. Repent by turning from your old life of sin to a new life in Christ.
5. Receive, through faith in Jesus Christ, his free gift of salvation.
There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God and He will save you.
Prayer of Faith:
I admit I am a sinner and deserve death. I have done things that do not please You and ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save me from my sin and from death I believe that He rose from the grave to give me new life. I now give You control of my life and ask You to help me live in a way that pleases You. Thank you for your gift and that I can spend eternity with You.
