Did you know
is a gift?
by Patricia Wagner
A s hard as we may try to get everything right when it comes to our health, in the end our earthly life spans are only so long. Few of us will be alive 100 years from now!So while we're trying to eat healthy foods, exercise and get the right medical care, in the end we're going to need something more than that.
We really do need a completely new kind of life that is eternal.
This life can only come from God.Did you realize that God is offering us the best health plan of all - ultimate wellness of body, mind and spirit!
He loves us so very much... more than any of us will ever completely understand.
Who can imagine the love that God has for us?
This is the greatest love story of all time!
This is the most wonderful romance of all!
Today there's the scientific miracle of heart transplants. A functioning heart from someone who has died is surgically placed into the chest cavity of a living person who will die unless this procedure is done. So one person has given his life for someone else. However, not willingly.
In the case of God, He deliberately sent His Son into the world to give His life for us.
Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the debt we can't pay. He took our punishment. He also rose from the dead and is forever alive!
Now those who are spiritually dead can also rise from the dead spiritually because of the life of Christ. Those who are alive spiritually will one day be resurrected from the dead physically like Jesus was!
When we trust Jesus Christ only to save us instead of relying on our own supposed goodness or on someone or something else, we actually receive a life transplant!
The Wordless Book uses colors instead of words to explain God's plan for our brand new life.
It's a short summary of the message of the Bible in colors.
The gold page tells us that God loves us very much.
His love is better than pure gold. He is preparing a beautiful home for His children where even the streets are made of transparent gold.
"For God so loved the world,that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but will have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
Would you like to put your name in this verse?
"For God so loved (you) that He gave His only begotten Son, that if (you) believe in Him, (you) will not perish but (you) will have everlasting life."
Do you believe this?
But there's a sad part to this true story. The dark page reveals that God will not allow any sin into heaven, for sin would spoil His beautiful home.
Sin is disobeying God. It means having us at the center of our lives instead of Him.
The book of Romans in the New Testament shows us that "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. There is none righteous, no, not one. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
The things that are impossible for human beings to do are possible with God!
The red page tells us that the Father in heaven knew that everyone would sin, so He planned before the creation to have His Son take the punishment we deserve for breaking God's Law.
Jesus of Nazareth died for us and paid the only price that is adequate to purchase our ticket to heaven... His blood.
"The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin" (1 John 1:7).
The Bible tells us that there is only one way to heaven! Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).
We are all spiritually bankrupt and cannot pay the price to obtain eternal life. For by grace are you saved by faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9).
But Jesus paid the price and anyone who believes in Him can receive eternal life as a free gift.
Now we come to the white page where we learn how we can receive a brand new clean heart in exchange for our unclean sinful one."Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 16:31).
Will you just now make a U Turn on the road of your life and turn away from your sins? Will you trust Jesus Christ right now to save you from your sins?
No one and nothing else can give you eternal life. Trust Jesus today!
