God’s Free Gift

God has made it possible for us to have eternal life!

“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” (John 3:16, NIV).

But you may be thinking, “What about all the good things I’ve done in my life? They must count for something!” However, because God is holy, He demands absolute perfection.

“For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws” (James 2:10, NLT).

So regardless whether you keep most of God’s laws or just a few of them, you will fall short of His required standards. It’s not possible to earn your way into heaven through your good deeds. God can only accept sinless perfection. And Jesus was the only one who ever accomplished that.

“He (God) saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. … Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life” (Titus 3:5,7, NLT).

Jesus is the only way into heaven.

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me’” (John 14:6, NIV).

Jesus Christ paid for all your sins on the cross … and God’s perfect justice is totally satisfied by the blood of Jesus. He offers you the free gift of eternal life. The questions is, “Will you accept it?”
