The Gift that keeps on giving

17As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. "Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
18"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good—except God alone. 19You know the commandments: 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.'[a]"
20"Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy."
21Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
22At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!"
24The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is[b] to enter the kingdom of God! 25It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
26The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?"
27Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God." (Mark 10:17-27)

God has given each of us His perfect plan of salvation; Everlasting Life! It is His gift of grace to each and every one of us. We don't deserve it; we can't buy it, and we can't earn it...it's simply a gift! All we have to do is claim it.

"For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

God has given each of us a free will to decide how we will live our lives here on earth. We can opt for good or evil; we can follow a path of disobedience or a path of faithfulness...it's our decision. We have the power to accept or reject the gift.

We are not forgiven through trying our best to live a "good" life. We are forgiven by the great love of Jesus. God is willing to forgive us if we are willing to receive and accept His gift of grace and forgiveness in Jesus. .

Jesus Christ is our only path to eternal life with God, but you must open the door and invite Him into your life.
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (Rev. 3:20)

If you believe in Jesus Christ and His gift to you of His life, please don't delay your decision any longer. Yield your life to Him right now. Invite Jesus to come through the doorway of your life. Your life will be miraculously changed, by simply, and earnestly praying to Jesus to be with you.

Realize that God loves you and believe that Jesus Christ died for you. It is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

Peace and love,


"Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10)
