What is the free gift?
The Bible, God’s Word, says that the free gift God wants you to have is eternal life. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
How is it possible?
Though this gift is free to you, it cost God the life of His Son. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
The only payment that could cover sin in the Old Testament was a blood sacrifice. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” Leviticus 17:11
The only payment that can pay your sin debt in the New Testament is a blood sacrifice. Jesus went to the cross as the perfect and sinless sacrifice and shed His blood for your sin. “In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:14
How can this free gift be yours?
- You must admit that you are a sinner. “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
- You must realize that you need a Savior and cannot save yourself. “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.” Ephesians 2:8-9
- You must ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and become your Savior, based on His sacrifice on the cross for you. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9
If you want to receive this free gift of salvation, please pray this simple prayer right now: “Dear Lord Jesus, I realize that I am a sinner and I that need a Savior. You shed your blood to pay for my sin. Right now, I ask you to forgive me of my sins and come into my life and be my Savior.” Amen.
If you prayed that prayer and meant it in your heart, then you now have the free gift of everlasting life. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
