The Stimulus Package

(John 3:16 KJB)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

            Our news media is all in a “tizzy” over the Congressional Stimulus Package, a group of spending bills, tax cuts, and mostly wild hog and a forever debt.  Our government has forgotten its first love, which is God.  We are a nation founded under God, as a republic, a nation of laws for the people, by the principles God set down.
            Regardless of what the United States Government is doing, I want to relate to you another “Stimulus Package.”  God gave His only Son, hung Him on that “Old Rugged Cross,” allowed Him to die, and on the third day God lifted Him up from the grave.

(Romans 10:9 KJB)  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

            God has told us “If” and “whosoever” will believe, He will give them everlasting life, a life with Jesus and His Father, our God in Heaven.  The only stipulation God has made is that we believe with our heart, a sincere heart, a heart that says I do believe without a doubt that God has raised His Son Jesus from the grave. 

(Hebrews 10:22 KJB)  Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Understand when we have made that decision, God has entered our heart for eternity, never to leave.  With that decision, God and His Son has given us a Mansion that is built with love and Jesus’ blood, His sacrifice for us.
(John 14:2 KJB)  In my Father's house are many mansions: if it werenot so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

            Guess what?  With this mansion, there is no mortgage, no monthly payments, no Barney Frank to overlook the finances, a home of no debt, a home purchased by the blood of our Saviour, the One who died for our sins by a cruel hard death.

(Ephesians 2:8 KJB)  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
            It isn’t a home you can purchase, nor can you earn it.  God will give it to anyone who will sincerely claim His Son Jesus as his personal Lord and Saviour.  We are told that “Whosoever” believes.  The word “Whosoever” tells us God is not looking for just clean, wholesome, righteous people.  He is looking for all people to join Him and His Son Jesus. 

(Luke 19:10 KJB)  For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

God doesn’t care what you have been.  He isn’t concerning Himself with what you are, or even what you are doing or thinking about doing this minute.  He does not approve of what it is you have been, but He wants you to humble yourself and ask His Son into your heart.  He wants us just as we are.
            God’s Stimulus Package doesn’t come with fine print or a lot of strings attached.  In return for our belief in His Son, He will give us an eternal, everlasting, forever and forever and forevermore home with Him and His Son in Heaven. 
Accept God’s Plan and secure your home in Heaven, a home without Government intervention, a home of rest and glory with Jesus.
            Trust and your heart, a sincere true heart, and accept Him today without delay.  Trust what God can do for you.
