God's Free Gift

Salvation is the free gift of God through Jesus Christ. Eternal life, deliverance from death and condemnation, cannot be purchased for any earthly sum, but it is yours for the taking, completely free of any charge. This is because Jesus Christ has already paid for you, for all of us, by His death on the cross in our place. By His sacrifice, He ransomed us, paying the price for all the sins we would ever commit, and thus opening up the door to paradise. If you would like to drink the water of life, it is available to you, right now, and without any cost. Simply believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. As ambassadors of Christ, as though God were urging you through us, we beg you, be reconciled to God! (2nd Corinthians 5:20).

Let your heart not be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.
In my Father's house there are many dwelling places.
If it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again and take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
John 14:1-3

For God loved the world so much, that he gave His only beloved Son, in order that
whoever believes in Him might not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:16

For you have been saved by (God's) grace through faith (in Christ);
and this did not come from you - it is God's gift.
Nor did it come from what you have done, lest anyone should boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9

For there is no deliverance through any other person,
nor has any other name on earth been given by which we must be saved.

Acts 4:12

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved."
Acts 16:31

The testimony of scripture is abundantly clear. All that is needed is for you to accept the gracious offer of a loving God, who has already done everything for you. What more could He do than to send His precious Son to die in your place, so that you could live forever with Him? All that is needed is for you to accept, to place your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, to believe in Him, and eternal life will be yours. All God asks is that you not reject this His ineffable gift. 

And the Spirit and the bride say "Come!"
And let the one who hears say, "Come!"
And let the one who is thirsty come;
let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

Revelation 22:17
