God took the biggest risk in the history of the entire universe. He gave His ONLY Son so that through Him, you and I could be saved from eternal death, and live a plentiful, abundant, nothing missing nothing broken life here on earth. Why was this a risk? Because although the big chance exists that not everyone would want to take that gift and make it theirs, He did it anyway, without thinking of the cost and risk involved.
Now I don’t know about you, but chances are that, like me, you would probably weigh your risks before any type of transaction to ensure that you’re always getting the better end of the deal.
Not Him. He gave it ALL. That’s it-no questions asked. Knowing that perhaps many would go on without so much as stopping to consider His gift, He wasn’t deterred by that. Knowing even, that many would choose anything and everything else but His gift, He gave it anyway.
And the gift of life is still there….waiting…. and available for everyone. That’s right, EVERYONE.
Everyone that will take it that is.
How can you take it? Easy. Just tell Him. Tell Him you acknowledge His sacrifice for you. Ask Him to come into your heart and do what He does best with your life. He says in Revelation 3:20 NKJV
“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.”
He REALLY loves us. Why would anyone do what He did if it weren’t for love?
If you have never received God’s gift of salvation into your heart, you can say a simple prayer consisting of these few words:
“God, I acknowledge the gift you gave me through Jesus. I understand that He died and rose again so that I wouldn’t have to die. Come into my heart, take my life, and do something with it. I receive your gift and I thank you today.”
