Human Effort posted by John Sorensen on May 25, 2016
Most people don’t realize that man cannot save himself.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. The truth that no amount of human effort can earn the free gift of eternal life may need to be repeated and emphasized in different ways – because from birth, we’re all programmed to work for everything like our grades, rewards and wages to name a few. But God’s way is grace—undeserved love and favor – and we have to receive freely what we don’t deserve. Ask the person you’re sharing with, “How much do you pay for the air you breathe, your intelligence, or this physical life?” We rarely give those gifts a thought but they are just that – gifts from a gracious God. And, if those are all gifts from God, how much more are eternal life and Heaven? Romans 6:23 tell us that, “. . .the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.” To watch a video demonstrating how to share the free gift of eternal life, you can visit our website at ShareLife.today.
