If there were a free gift sitting on a table with a vial inside that had water from the fountain of youth, would you take it? All you have to do is open the box, drink the water, and believe that the water would allow you to live forever and you would never die. It would seem that only a crazy person would say no to this.
Now let’s say that the gift is from your friend that has never lied to you and you can trust them completely. They told you that all you have to do is drink this water and you’ll live forever. You would have no reason to not take the free gift.
Similarly, if your friend gave you that gift, wouldn’t you want to give that gift to your other friends so they could live forever?
The gift of salvation from Jesus Christ is just like this gift. It is like the gift sitting on the table that all you have to do is accept it, and you will live eternally. That’s it! Accepting salvation is just like opening the present and drinking the water from the fountain of youth.
- By asking Christ into your life, you open the box
- By asking for salvation, you drink the water
- Trusting that you are saved by grace through Christ is like believing in the water from the fountain of youth.
- If your friend is God’s Word, it is a trusted friend that won’t lie to you and tells you that you can trust in Christ for salvation.
So if you had no reason to not take the free gift before, you have no reason not to take the free gift of salvation through Christ Jesus.
Also, if you would give your friend the gift before, you should want them to have the gift from Christ as well. So you should tell your friends.
If salvation is as simple as accepting Christ into your life, what are you waiting for?
I know it can be scary to think about a life change, but if you have Someone that can see the future and will watch over you eternally for just trusting in Him, there can’t be a better life change! There are more details to being a Christ-follower, but you will pick those up along the way. They aren’t scary!
