Accepting the Gift

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

THINK
Have you ever considered all that Jesus has done for you? For just a moment, think about it. Jesus, God’s only Son, willingly left His place in heaven to live among us on earth. Not only did He come to earth and fully identify with us, His creation, He also lived perfectly, died sacrificially, and rose bodily in order to afford us an opportunity to spend eternity in heaven with Him. To put it simply, He came to pay a debt that was owed for something He never did – sin. We are the ones who have sinned; yet, He covered the payment.

Now, we each have a choice. Either we accept the free gift of salvation that Jesus provides, and thus experience His power and forgiveness for eternity. Or we choose to ignore that gift and spend eternity separated from Him. Jesus has already done the work. It’s all about what we choose to do with what Jesus has already done. Have you accepted His gift?

PRAY
The gift of salvation is a free one. But we must first confess who Jesus is and what He has done. Pray right now (even if you have done it before) that you acknowledge who Jesus is and what He has done for you. Proclaim Him as Lord, and experience the power of His Spirit in your life.

ACT
Help others understand what the free gift of salvation is all about!
