The Eternal Gift
Accept, Believe, Confess
The road leading to Christ and eternal salvation is clearly marked. Signs are all around giving directions to listen, accept, believe, confess, and receive His great love. Living with Christ eternally simply means one must understand the truth about all created life. The universe has one Maker-Creator that holds the keys of unexplainable mysteries. Life is a gift to us by God exchanged for companionship and intimacy. God gave mankind Himself in order to form a more perfect union greater than any natural marriage. God was so proud of His work and instructed everything He created to be fruitful and multiply. His true command was not to just make more bodies and increase numbers; He wanted our love to multiply. God’s instruction was to keep giving love over and over again until it latches on to something and changes the environment.
Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Children grow through stages where they have a perfect toy. Then all of a sudden, they outgrow the toy and may never pick it up again. The toy is tossed to the side, abandoned, crushed, stepped on, or given to Goodwill. Some other lonely kid finds the toy at Goodwill and it is perfect for his/her needs. The cycle of God’s love is endless, consistently giving love to His creation and He gets treated just like the abandoned toy. God loves us perfectly. Are we having issues believing the possibility of another loving us in distasteful areas? God did not put conditions on His love. He loved us before we knew sin, while we are in sin, after sin, and thinking about going back in sin (Romans 5:8). You and I were born into a world of sin through no fault of our own.
The first humans were made in God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1:26). God’s intimate companions (1st created humans) decided to disobey and rebel against His instructions for life. Disobedience to God’s commandments brought harsh consequence (Genesis chapter 3). After the fall of man, his eyes opened to his own sin and deception by the evil one. The penalty or wage for sin was and is death. God so loved His creation that He decided not to destroy humanity (John Chapter 3). Instead, He instituted a plan for His Son Jesus to pay for all sin. God used Jesus as an escape goat or official sacrifice for the remission of sin. God the Father, offered Jesus as the only worthy sacrifice for sin committed in the Garden. Jesus paid our ultimate price for sin.
Sin opened the door to destruction and contamination. This current sinful world shall cease to exist (Revelation 21). Through the supernatural power of God’s love man will continue in the presence of God’s love with a new heaven and a new earth replacing the old sinful state of life. The Lord is offering us citizenship in the Kingdom of God and eternal life in the new world. Will you repent of your sins today? Accept a personal Savior, who is able to provide forgiveness, redemption, restoration, deliverance, healing and eternal life? Ask Christ into your hearts today and thank Him for such an amazing love experience. This gift of salvation is especially for us and its costs equals to exchanging love between us and God. All creation is in a Kingdom shift from glory to glory. These are the last days to repent and accept the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior. I compel you to surrender your current life to Jesus. If you have never known, an overwhelming love that over-shadows who you are, accept His plan of salvation.
Pray this Prayer:
Lord, I believe the truth of Your word. I am a sinner with a need for salvation. Come into my heart and allow me to experience the depths of Your love including an intimate relationship with the Savior of the Universe. I believe You were worthy to die for my sins. I believe Your shed blood, death, resurrection, ascension to heaven along with my acceptance, belief, and confession, guarantees me eternal life and a place in Your Kingdom. Thank You for saving me from sin and eternal death. Amen

Romans 5:8 But God commended His love toward us, in that: while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

I Peter 1:18-21
I am a slave to the blood of Jesus. I had a slave Master before I was a slave.I was identified before I came into existence, and before I was ordained to be the recepient of His grace.
Jesus blood was poured out and splattered as a drink offering so that I could drink of His shed blood to the fulfillment of life for the atonement of death for my sins.
Jesus blood is the saving grace for my shackled sins. The blood brought through grace unlatched the chains of bondage and corruption previously attached to my record as a sinner.
Sin and shame tried to own me but a Master came along that said," I will take the stained one, the one marred and covered to the point no one can see her true worth."
I will take the one that slipped back into her sinful ways. I will marry this backslidder. I will take her blemished self and redeem her as My own.
While her enemies are offering gold, sllver, and precious metals; I offer my blood to redem her soul.
Then I emerged, stepped forth saying," Thank you Lord, I will serve you throughout the ages in this world and the world to come."
