The Gift of Eternal Life

Romans 6 23 christmas

Verse of the Day: Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Spiritual death and separation from God is the price we pay for sin. Yet, because of God’s love for humanity He sent His only Son to pay the price and set us free. Eternal life is given to us by the grace of God through faith in Jesus, not by our own efforts or works so that no one will ever be able to boast that he earned or deserved eternal life, it is a free gift from God.

Grace, Compassion and Mercy

Psalm 145 8

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 145:8

The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in mercy.

Where would we be if not for God’s grace, compassion, patience and mercy?  We serve a mighty God who can do anything and although we don’t deserve any of His compassion and goodness, He still loves us. He loves us so much and is so merciful that He sent His only Son to come into the world to redeem sinners by dying on the cross and paying the ultimate price for our sin. Proclaim with me the Lord’s greatness; let us praise His name together! (Psalm 34:3)

Hope of Eternal Life with God

Revelation 21 4

 

Verse of the Day:  Revelation 21:4

 

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

 

There is no denying that evil exists in this world.  Some may ask why God allows horrible events to happen.  The truth is we may never have the answer to this question.  What we do know is that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to offer salvation to all. Even though we may suffer in this world, as Christians, we have the hope of eternal life with God.
