Unexpected gifts given
Did someone give you an unexpected gift?
Why would someone do that?
Do you just chalk it up to them being a good person?

Is it doing good things or being polite to others?
How would you answer...
WOULD YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF TO BE A GOOD PERSON?
(Most people say YES! but...)
COMPARED TO WHAT?

2 CORINTHEANS 5:21
That's when I realized that while I wasn't "good"
CHRIST WAS OFFERING ME
All I had to do was receive this gift of salvation and eternal life
For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not only of yourselves: it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast.
HERE'S HOW YOU RECIEVE
Admit that you are a sinner who
has come short of the glory of
God, and because of your sin,
you deserve to be punished
But God will demonstrate His own love toward us
in that while we are still sinners,
Christ died for us.
Believe that Jesus Christ died,
was buried and rose triumphantly
over death paying the punishment
for your sin on the cross.
For God loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him
Should not perish but have everlasting life.
Call upon the Lord Jesus. Repent of trusting anything but Christ alone for salvation from hell and be assured of a home in heaven forever.
That 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

blood that covers our sin.

Ask him to lead you from this
If you confess with your mouth
and believe in your heart..
Trusting Christ is more than just "saying a few words",
That's why it is called repentance because it is
changing the way you think and believe
IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART.
YOU COULD MAKE ONE OF
THESE PRAYERS YOUR OWN
WITH GOD TODAY.
"Jesus, you died upon a cross And rose again
to save the lost Forgive me now of all my sin
