GRACE IS A FREE GIFT AND IT’S FROM GOD
“FREE” means: “without cost”, or “no payment required” Think about that.
In the Advertising world, “FREE” is the most powerful word there is. It’s the hook. It’s what motivates the buyer. It’s what brings in the customers! “FREE”
Our message, to the lost and unbelieving world, should be exactly that: GRACE IS FREE!
Acts 20:24 Paul says: “…. The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me– to tell people the Good News about God’s grace.
1 Thes 1:5 “…the Good News we brought to you came not only with words, but with power, with the Holy Spirit, and with sure knowledge that it is true.”
