The Greatest Gift of All

The Greatest Gift

 

 

 

Do you know why it is traditional to give gifts at Christmas time? It is because God gave us the greatest gift of all on the first Christmas. The birth of Jesus marked the coming of the Saviour of mankind. As the sinless Son of God He became flesh so that He might one day give His life to pay the price of our sin. This is the greatest gift of all and all we need do is believe it. The Bible tells us this:

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, Not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
(Ephesians 2:8-9)

The Bible also tells that we are all separated from God because He is holy and we are sinful:

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. 
(Romans 3:23)

The penalty for our sin is death.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. 
(Romans 6:23)

The penalty for our sin was paid by Jesus Christ!

But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
(Romans 5:8)

If we repent of our sin, then confess and trust Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we will be saved from our sins! For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
(Romans 10:13)

...if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
(Romans 10:9,10)

At Casey Baptist Church we are running classes to explain these things and would love to have you join us in a small, friendly and non-confronting gathering. We can even arrange transport if you need it. If you would like to know more please call Pastor Phil on 0409 405 011.
