"But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God." (John 1:12, NLT)
Jim Elliot was a student at Wheaton College. In 1965 he and four other missionaries were killed in the jungles of Ecuador. Their deaths caused a tremendous reaction amongst the Christian community. Several books were published telling the dramatic story. Amongst his belongings was a diary with these words, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to lose what he cannot gain.”
Are you ready? Is your life right with God? Do you have that deep down assurance that you are a child of God, that your sins are washed away? Do you know that you have a place reserved in Heaven for you? You can find forgiveness and salvation in Christ. You can know peace with God. God offers salvation as a gift.
You can make that commitment, right now. You can know your sins forgiven and peace with God.
" I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life." (1 John 5:13, NLT)
