A Gift For All by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

A Gift For All by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life (John 3:16).

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is
death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Eternal life is
God’s gift to the world, not to Christians. You become a
Christian only after you’ve received eternal life, which is
the life and nature of God. What Jesus came to do, the
salvation He brought, was for the whole world. So, in
the mind of justice, the whole world has been saved,
because Jesus paid the price for every man’s sin. This is
legal salvation. Vital salvation is only received by
personal faith in Jesus Christ.

Unless one acknowledges, and accepts His
vicarious sacrifice, he won’t experience the vital reality
of the finished works of salvation in his personal life.
That’s where we come in; those of us who have
become Christians have a responsibility to tell the world
what Jesus did. Many don’t believe because they
haven’t heard. Romans 10:14 sums it rightly: “How
then shall they call on him in whom they have not
believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom
they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a
preacher?”

They’ve got to hear that Jesus is the way, the
truth, and the life, and that He’s made that life available
to everyone. It’s a gift; therefore, they don’t have to
work for it; all they need is to receive it. Romans
10:9-10 says, “…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God
hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
That’s how simple it is to receive this glorious,
wonderful gift of eternal life, and become an associate
of the God-kind.

The human life is depraved, degenerate, and
broken; but God has provided another life, the
transcendent life, which He wants all men to have and
live. It’s the life of absolute victory, glory, righteousness,
and dominion in Christ; it makes you indestructible and
supernatural, and it’s only available in Christ.

PRAYER
I thank you, precious Father, for sending Jesus to die
for me, making it possible for me to have eternal
life. This life is working in every fibre of my being,
repelling sickness, disease, infirmity, death, poverty,
and everything that’s inconsistent with the provisions
of the divine life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
