Okay you may say tell me about that gift. Or you may say I do not need that gift I am able to earn my own. If you want to earn them then you have to follow all the laws and commandments of God. Now you may say that is impossible, I am human I usually fail. That is why God wants to give it to you as a free gift. Free gift ? Yes , free gift because Jesus Christ already purchased it by His sacrifice and by His blood.
But you may ask , what is the catch ? The catch is we have to admit our unworthiness or sinfulness. What is sinfulness ? Sinfulness is our inability to obey God or our violation of God's laws, like thinking evil thoughts, wrong acts, cheating, greed, saying bad things . The Bible says all of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Okay , we may say ,yes I am guilty. What do I do now ? The Bible says, repent, or confess to God that we are sinners. And receive the gift of pardon through Jesus Christ.
The Bible says that if we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God has raised Him from the dead we will be saved.
If you have done the above, you are now a child of God, you have the gift of eternal life. God will also lead you to a church where you will know more and grow more . Maybe you are already in a church, so ask your priest or pastor for more about this eternal life.
