Open the Gift

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. …“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:9-10,13 (NIV)

The story of the Gospel is a simple message. We have all made mistakes that separate us from God. There are consequences for our mistakes, which is death or eternal separation from God. God loved us so much, He chose to send His Son to die in our place to pay for our mistakes instead of living eternity without us.  He offers this as a free gift to us. All we have to do is open the gift.
