“Heaven Is Free!” Surely those are the greatest words mankind could ever hear – not because a price wasn’t paid, but because God paid it Himself! If you don’t understand that eternity in heaven cannot be earned, then you don’t understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He suffered, died and rose again to so that we might live with Him eternally. If we could have earned it on our own, He would have only needed to wait!
“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
