For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
I can remember when telemarketing calls used to make up about 80% of my incoming
phone calls! Aaaarrrgghhh! The ones that I probably most hid from were the life
insurance salespeople because I knew it was needed... just didn't enjoy being reminded
of my mortality and didn't want to have that be my 'conversation of the day.'
Well, have I got a life insurance (assurance) deal for you! This policy comes to you
without a phone call, from a "company" that has been around for..well, since time began.
There's no contract to sign, no paperwork to keep, no premiums to mail in or, if you
are really brave, to pay on-line. The cost of the policy is free; that's right, a free gift
from none other than my favorite CEO, Almighty God Himself.
But it came to you at a cost! Jesus Christ, who became sin so that we would no longer
be seen as sinful, was sacrificed upon a cross so that this policy could be available to those
who would choose to give their lives and their trust to Him. He served as the only
possible propitiation for our sin; He was the payment for sin that God could not and can
not accept. His righteousness was exchanged for our sinful nature so that when we
stand before a Holy God, we will be seen as the righteousness of Lord Jesus.
But wait, I'm not done with the sales pitch. Not only is this a policy that cannot be
revoked, the beneficiary is YOU! That's right, when you die for the first and only
time, the glorious payout promised by this policy is eternal life in the presence
of God. You receive a place in the new Heaven, experience a glorious resurrected
body and become a permanent resident in a place where there is no evil, no sin,
no death, no tears.....get the picture?
Here's the payment plan... you need to accept Jesus into the prominent position
in your heart, as your Lord and Savior. You need to give up trying to direct your
life and turn it over to Him. That's the bottom line. The extra benefits abound....
less stress, worry, pride, anger, sinfulness and hopelessness.
How and where do you sign up? Easy. Take a knee or two and ask God to
save you with this Life Assurance Plus promise. He's waiting. Do it now!
