So, what is the offer? God's offer to us is forgiveness, unconditional love, and eternal life. The cost? Accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. It's that easy!
There were early followers of Jesus that didn't realize His importance or the value of the "deal" of spending time with Him. Some of these followers gave up and returned to their old ways and old friends, but Simon Peter realized the value of his time with Jesus. Simon Peter knew Jesus held the key to eternal life and wholeheartedly believed in who Jesus was (and is!) and in the message Jesus spread.
We must believe as Simon Peter did when Jesus asked the twelve disciples if they were going away. Even if others give up on or turn away from Jesus, we need to remain faithful and committed to Jesus and His message of eternal life. We need to realize the value of the deal offered to us and we must accept it!
Where else can you go to find the deal that God offers us through His Son? The answer: NOWHERE! Now it is up to each one of us to accept the deal and spread the word in love to others!
Thank You for placing the best deal within my reach. Thank You sending Your Son and for forgiving my sins. Please help me to spread Your love and the message of eternal life to others. In Jesus' name, Amen.
