Receive the gift of…it’s free.

There is no other name through which anyone can be saved. The only name that brings us peace is Jesus. The only place from which we can experience eternal peace is through the name of Jesus. When we accept Him, we are basted BY His grace. We receive the gift of apostleship to go forward and share this gift with the rest of the world.

We accomplish our mission through prayer, continual never-ending prayer, and supplication to our farther. No, this does not mean that e give up our jobs and become monks. But it does mean that we pray on and off throughout of working, or living day for the things that matter to the kingdom of God,

  1. We pray for our families that they will be safe in this tragic place that we call our temporary homes.
  2. We pray for their physical safety and their eternal rest.
  3. After they receive Christ, we pray that they will grow in their relationships with Him.
  4. We pray that they will hand over their lives to Him. That they will trust him to love them as deeply as God loves us. He created all things for our enjoyment, and He watches over us each nano-second of every day.
  5. We pray that they will be blessed to be a blessing to others. I have had times of financial security in my life when I had more than I really needed to live. I sowed seed into the lives of others so they could come along with me and share His love with others. I gave them the tools they needed to do just that. Pray for your families to be blessed in that way.

Here we are seeing that Paul wants to stir up the gift that is inside the church. Is that your desire too?

11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; 12 That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. 13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles. 14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. 15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

He clarifies his position by stating:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Why isn’t the apostle ashamed of sharing his story and the gospel of Jesus Christ? It is the gift that God gives, through His power, to everyone who chooses to believe in Jesus Christ. It began with the Jewish nation, and then it was spread out to the Gentile world. Yes, God started his mission with the Jewish nation. The righteousness of God is a perfect gift that is given to those who believe and live and walk by faith? Do you want to receive the gift of eternal life, IT IS FREE? Just say the sinner’s prayer and contact us. We will connect you with a church that is near you.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the precious gift of eternal life that you have given to us. We do not deserve it and yet you still love us so. So much that you want us to live with you eternally. There is nothing that we can say or do that make us qualify for this gift. We just need to trust you and live according to your word to become closer to you. We choose whether or not we receive this gift and value it. Thank you for the cross Lord. Amen.
