Suppose someone came up to you and offered to give you a car. Wouldn’t that be an amazing gift? Suppose they offered to give you a million dollars. That too would be amazing. Suppose they had the power and ability to offer to you the promise that you would never be sick the rest of your life. That would be incredible. Now, finally, suppose that you were offered the opportunity to live forever. Would you take that gift?
Incredibly, this is what God has offered to us in his son, Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Eternal life is God’s gift to us if we would but receive it by believing in Jesus. If we refuse, we can expect to receive the wages of our sin.
This is an amazing gift.
