There's a free gift ready and waiting for you. What's in it? All the wonders of the entire universe and more! Everything necessary has already been done to insure that when you simply believe that this free gift is yours, you will immediately become a joint-heir with the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, Himself! Everything He is and has will instantly become yours the moment you trust that He paid the price for your sins with His own blood on Calvary's Cross and rose from the dead to assure you of delivery.

How can I be so sure? I'm certain of it because the King James Bible is the absolute, preserved word of God; and in 2 Corinthians 5:19, His inspired word tells me that “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.” This means that God asks only one thing of us today: Accept the fact that He has now reconciled the whole world unto Himself in Christ. It's done. There is nothing more to do. No sinner's prayer to pray. No promises to make about cleaning up your act. No church rituals to perform. God is reconciled to you; now you need to be reconciled to Him by agreeing with Him that “he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Cor. 5:21). That's all that's necessary!

When you accept the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ has done it all, the Holy Spirit of God supernaturally baptizes you into Christ where you are sealed by Him eternally. The Holy Spirit seal keeps you so securely in Christ that you couldn't get out even if you wanted! (2 Tim. 2:13). There is nothing you must do, and nothing you must not do, in your future walk in Christ, to keep you safely there. Glorious fruits of righteousness will naturally spring forth according to the measure of your yielding to the Spirit that indwells you. (Eph. 2:10). With or without your obedience or fruit, after accepting God's gift, your salvation is sure because the Lord Jesus Christ has purchased you with a price. (Eph. 1:14).

So what are you waiting for? Thank God for His unspeakable gift and accept yours today! (2 Cor. 9:15). Then read the Scriptures regularly, paying special attention to the doctrines of Grace that God gave exclusively to the Apostle of the Gentiles, Paul, in order to form the Body of Christ today. (2 Tim. 2:15).
