God's Free Gift to You



It's fun to receive gifts from friends and family for Christmas or birthdays. Sometimes we receive gifts when we shop for cosmetics, but those gifts often require that we spend $50. 

God gives us the gift of eternal life. He gave all He had, His only Son. He did this out of a great love for us (John 3:16). "For by grace you have been saved through faith and this is not from yourselves; it is the  gift of God, not by works so that no one can boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9). This gift has two benefits. First, Jesus died on the cross to save us from sin, death and hell, and second, He gave us everlasting life with Him. 

Have you ever felt empty and unfulfilled? What do you do when you have these feelings? Many look for love and acceptance in the wrong places. The good news is that Jesus accepts us. He loves us so much He wants to spend eternity with us. Along with this eternal life, our lives have purpose. If we begin to feel anxious or restless as we did before, we can take those feelings to Jesus in prayer, and experience His peace and love.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for your free gift of eternal life. Help us to receive it and day by day grow to be more like Jesus. Amen.
