How many of us love to receive gifts? We give gifts to people we love. But how many of us give gifts to our enemies?
We have become God’s enemies by turning our backs on him and living a life of lies, jealousy, immorality, and unforgiveness. Our rebellion is leading us to an eternity away from him.
But God does not want that to be our eternal destiny, so though we were his enemies, he chose to give us the best gift of all, his own son, Jesus. Jesus came to die in our place to pay for our sin, and his resurrection gave him authority to offer you the gift of forgiveness and eternal life.
Will you receive the gift of Jesus? Will you give him your life in return? Turn from your sin and turn your life over to Jesus, and you will be welcomed into his family!
