Did You Receive God's Gift ?

Wouldn't it be nice to live in a place where there is no pain or sorrow? A place where you can live forever in peace and have unconditional love? Where can you find this unconditional love?
Is there really a place where there is no pain or sorrow? This unconditional love is given by God and His Son, Jesus Christ and according to God’s Holy Word (the Bible), Jesus is in heaven right now preparing a place for those who choose to follow him and obey His commandments.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:3
This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Acts 1:10
Are you ready for Jesus to come again and receive you unto Himself? Do you desire to spend eternity with God and His Son, Jesus? Jesus will not force you to choose Him. He gave all of us a free will so that we might CHOOSE Him. What will you do with Jesus? His invitation is there always.
The Invitation
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice ,and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. - Revelation 3:20
Why would Jesus do this for you?
The Story
For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him; should not perish; but have everlasting life. - John 3:16
God does not want you to perish, but instead have everlasting life. But there is only one way to have everlasting life. It is through Jesus Christ, God’s Son. It is not through your church or by being good. It is not through your pastor, priest or rabbi.
Only One Way
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
You cannot be with Jesus and the Father if you have not received His gift of salvation. And just like any other gift, you must RECEIVE it. You cannot be with Jesus and live eternally with Him where there is no pain or sorrow until you do something about the condition of your heart, which is filled with sin and corruption.
All have Sinned
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; - Romans 3:23
Sin is Death
For the wages of sin is death.... Romans 6:23a
But you can do something about the sin in your heart. There is salvation for you through Jesus Christ. It is God’s gift to you.
Receiving the Gift
But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Romans 6:23b
All you have to do is CONFESS your sins and repent. This means to turn away from them.
Confessing Your Sin
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. - I John 1:9
I tell you nay, but except ye repent; ye shall all likewise perish. - Luke 13:3
Once you confess your sins, repent, and ask Jesus to be Lord and Savior of your life, then the Holy Spirit comes to live in you and empowers you to obey Him and keep His commandments.
If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15
And once you give your life to Jesus and follow Him in obedience to His Word then you will have that eternal life and live forever with Jesus in a place of love and peace with no pain and sorrow. What a gift!
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people. And God himself shall be with them, and be their God. Revelation 21:3
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4
Won’t you receive God’s gift today?
