The FREE Gift!

“As long as you did what you felt like doing, ignoring God, you didn’t have to bother with right thinking or right living, or right anything for that matter. But do you call that a free life? What did you get out of it? Nothing you’re proud of now. Where did it get you? A dead end.

But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭6:20-23‬ ‭MSG‬‬

What a day that will be, when our Lord we shall see!

“And I heard a loud voice from heaven, saying, “Look! The tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them. They shall be His people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. ‘God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. There shall be no more death.’ Neither shall there be any more sorrow nor crying nor pain, for the former things have passed away.””
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:3-4‬ ‭MEV‬‬

When people hear that something is free, they will stand in line for hours to receive a free gift. Most of them don’t even care what it is, or if they actually need it. The attraction is that it is FREE. I wonder why people all over the world aren’t accepting the FREE GIFT from God. It brings peace and joy to your life. There is no other gift like it in the past, present, or future. God’s gift of enteral life, through his son Jesus, is the most important gift you will ever receive. All you have to do is accept it.
