For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. – John 3:16
If you are a bargain shopper, this is the deal of a lifetime. Jesus lived on earth, so that we wouldn’t have to live alone. Jesus died a sinner’s death, so that we wouldn’t have to die in our sin. Jesus arose from the dead, so that we could have eternal life with Him. All this for simply believing in Him. This wasn’t a weekend sale or a time limited special, the offer still stands today. Our service, our resources, our trust in Him seems such a small exchange for the treasure that awaits us!
Savior, I accept Your offer that has stood the test of time. I believe in You and take hope knowing that You believe in me. How can I thank you for such a great exchange?
