We see it every day on social media. Donald Trump or Mark Zuckerberg giving away loads of money if you just share a post. Don’t we all know if it’s too good to be true, it probably is? Nothing in life is free. But is the Good News too good to be true?
The Gospel is that all have sinned, but if we repent of our sins & accept the free gift of salvation given by Jesus Christ, we’ll spend eternity with Him & enjoy the benefits of a relationship with Him while on this Earth. Other religions make you work for it. Muslims must observe the five pillars in hopes that their good deeds outweigh the bad. Buddhists go through a cycle of rebirth, following the Noble Eightfold Path until they reach nirvana. Hindus go through a cycle of reincarnation based on karma until their good deeds are good enough to achieve oneness with God. Christianity is the only faith where salvation is free, while the others take work.
Anything worth having takes work, one may say. But what if the work has already been done for you? Jesus Christ has finished the work & given salvation to you. All you have to do is accept the gift. The good news is that the Good News is true.
