The Perfect Gift
John 3:16 tells us that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
God sent Jesus, who is without sin, to a fallen and sinful world; “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). God gave us His Son to pay the price for sin, which is death, and to bridge the gap between sinners and a holy God so that we could live forever with Him. There is nothing that we can do to earn or deserve this gift. It is only through faith in Jesus. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
God has given you the perfect gift—the free gift of eternal life. Will you receive it today? If you believe that you are a sinner in need of a Savior, and you understand that Jesus is that Savior, tell Him so right now. Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
