Do you want to know how to receive the most perfect gift?
Just read the following:
God loves you and wants you to know that He has a plan for your life.
The Bible says: “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” John 10:10b (NASB)
God gives us a choice to follow or to reject Him. Unfortunately, since Adam man has chosen to disobey God and to go his own way. Everyone has sinned against God.
The Bible says: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
As hard as you may try, nothing you can do will compensate for your sins and bring you back into a right relationship with God.
The Bible says: “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not as a result of works, that no one should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
Someone must pay for your sins before you can be rightly-related to God. Because you cannot pay, God did. He loves you so much that He sent His perfect, sinless son Jesus to earth to be crucified on a cross for your sins. When Jesus died that agonizing death, He paid the penalty for you.
The Bible says: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
If Jesus had not risen from the dead, you would still be separated from God by your sins. But He did. Jesus could not be overcome by death. He came back to life and now lives in heaven with His Father.
The Bible says: “That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.” Romans 10:9
Christ died for your sins. He has the power to forgive your sins and wash them away.
The Bible says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9
Jesus wants to give you the gift of salvation. You have to first confess your sin and repent (to turn the other direction) and invite Him into your life and ask Him to be your Savior and the Lord of your life.
Jesus says: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him.” Revelation 3:20
