For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
One Thanksgiving vacation, our son took us to a pricey store.
My wife asked, “How much is the Thanksgiving discount today?” My son said, “A hundred percent!”
He meant that he was treating, paying for everything, so whatever his mother bought, it would be a free gift.
Jesus Christ gave us a valuable free gift as well: eternal life. I do not deserve it. I am a sinner. The wage of my sin is death.
Yet, Jesus died on the cross for my sin.
I believe in Him. He gives me life here on earth as well as eternal life. It is both wonderful and precious to know that when I die one day, that is not the end.
Our destiny and inheritance are not death. They are eternal life in Christ! We were not created to merely exist, to barely survive. We were created to spend eternity as fresh, young, vibrant beings!
Yes! Full of energy, without any limitation, we will live forever in perfect peace and harmony with Jesus and His fellow believers. With our redeemed friends and loved ones, we will join the angelic chorus in singing “Hosanna in the highest.”
Join these joyous saints for your free gift today!
Eternal God, Creator of the Universe,
I honor and admire You.
I appreciate You forever for the precious gift of eternal life in Christ.
Help me to share this wonderful news with everybody in the world. In Jesus’ dear name I pray and praise, Amen.
