Most people will tell you it’s a good idea work hard for your money. And they’re right. Hard work is good for you. It helps you learn how to solve problems, build things, and serve others. And it’s the best way on earth to earn money and even get rich. But what if I told you there are free riches even better than riches you earn? Would you believe me? Well, keep reading…
There’s a place in the Bible that says God, in His mercy, makes you alive. The kind of alive that lasts forever. Because He loves you so much, and He wants you to live forever. And it will take forever to enjoy the free riches God wants to give you. The free riches of His grace. And God showed His grace to you…and me…and everyone by sending us His Son, Jesus.
Jesus is the one who made sure you would never have to earn your way into Heaven. In fact, He showed how you never could. So, God’s riches of grace are a free gift He gives to anyone who asks Him. Jesus already did all the work to pay for the gift. Isn’t that awesome?!
God made you. He knows you. And most of all He loves you. That’s why He wants you to be with Him forever. That’s why He’s made the way to get there so easy. All you gotta do is love Jesus. Do you love Jesus? Do you know Him? If not, wouldn’t you like to know such a good friend?
Here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
When God gives you free riches of grace,
You will live in a Heavenly place.
And His love for you never will end.
He’s your life and your very best Friend.
