You never see anything that is truly "FREE" these days. Coupons are buy one get one free, free item with purchase, free upgrade, free shipping on $ or more purchases... but in the end, you still end up spending something, in order to get something for free. Even if you do get a free coupon for a small in-store item, you are still likely to spend money when you go in to redeem it - that is, IF you even go get that free small soda, or small fry, etc.
However, there IS something, a spectacular gift that is better than anything you could ever imagine, and it is YOURS for the taking! That's right folks: JESUS IS FREE TO YOU AND ME! He did come at a price, a very high price to Himself and to God the Father, for Jesus was the perfect sacrifice sent to die for mankind. But God loved us SO much, Jesus loves us SO much, that HE came to die in our place ~ to pay the price of sin and death once and for all!
Satan only has power over that which is his. If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your LORD and Savior, then Satan has his way with you. However, once you have accepted Jesus into your heart, and asked Him to forgive you and lead you in HIS path, know without a doubt that Jesus is right there with you through every trial. Every struggle is not to bring you down, but to build you up!
Once you are clothed in Christ, Satan's attacks become futile. Any hurt, trial, struggle, hurdle he tries to trip you up with, will only become stepping stones for you to build your faith, and to glorify God. When you walk with God, HE will be your strength, your peace, and your joy.
GOD WANTS TO GIVE THIS GIFT TO YOU, TOO! FOR FREEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
