God has put each of us on the spot by offering justification and eternal life as a free gift, through Christ, who died for our sins.
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 6:23).
Now the question is: Will you accept this gift, or will you reject it? Perhaps you reply: “I won’t do anything about it; I’ll take my time and think it over.” But you can’t; you can’t just do nothing about a free gift which God offers for your acceptance “now” (II Cor. 6:2). If you do not accept it, you thereby reject it.
God purposely puts us on the spot in this matter, for the consequences are truly great. In John 3, we are told:
“The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: but he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:35,36).
God does not take it lightly when He offers forgiveness and all the riches of His grace as a gift and this gift is spurned. Unbelievers are not condemned only because they have sinned, but because they have spurned God’s grace and rejected salvation through Christ, who died to save them. Thus it is written:
“He that believeth on Him is not condemned, but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18).
Which will you do, accept Christ or reject Him and the gift of salvation He purchased for you with His blood?
