A gift to everyone, and it is free
It might be free to us because someone paid the price for it, and what an awesome price it was! He gave his life, so we wouldn’t have to pay for it. That free gift is repentance. If he hadn’t made that sacrifice, none of us would have a very bright future. I know for sure I wouldn’t. Don’t think for a minute that you can put something over on God for He knows everything we do and has it all written down.
