I read the daily devotion that was on the http://www.bgea.org website, and would like to share it with you, here is a link : http://billygraham.org/devotion/he-gives-us-life-eternal/
I loved the way that Billy Graham wrote this:
Recently I read that it will cost this country a hundred billion dollars to get one man safely to Mars. It cost God the priceless blood of His only Son to get us sinners to heaven. By tasting death for every man, Jesus took over our penalty as He erased our guilt. Now God can forgive. In a moment of thanksgiving, Paul once exclaimed, “He loved me and gave Himself for me!” Will you repeat these words right now, even as you read? If you do, I believe you will have cause to be thankful too, and that you will experience the love of God in your heart. Try it and see. The Bible teaches that you can be absolutely sure that you are saved.
Just to get one man safely to mars, it will cost a hundred billion dollars!
The blood of Jesus is priceless, and with it, He paid our price to Heaven!
That is so amazing and thought provoking! Not only did He pay the way, but He took our sinful past and all the guilt, and erased it, to make us new creatures, accepted by a Holy God.
The verse Billy Graham mentions about love is found in ‘The Message’ translation of the Bible in Galatians, Chapter 2:
The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Believe it, accept it, and rejoice that Jesus loves you, and paid for your salvation!
Dear God, thank You for salvation through Your precious Son! Our minds cannot even fathom the great price that was paid! I think of this great treasure that You have given us freely, and what it cost Your Son. Thank You for Your amazing love! In the name of Jesus, Amen.
There was a jailer who kept watch over Paul and Silas when they were in prison. An earthquake caused the jail doors to open one night. The jailer thought the men had escaped, and he was going to kill himself with a sword. Paul cried out in a loud voice, telling the jailer not to harm himself, they were all there. Acts 16:
29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
To be part of this great journey that Jesus offers us freely, believe on Him and be saved! This is not an easy journey, but a rewarding one!
