Wording of this Handout:

The Cost of Everlasting Life

Imagine if God was more interested in money than people? Imagine that one day He saint a message to earth, telling us that we could go to heaven if we paid Him one thousand dollars per person? How many people would pay?

Some people, of course, would not want to go to heaven. Some would try to get in cheaper. Some would look for a "package deal" or some sort of special concession entry. Some would try to sell their tickets at a higher price to other people . Millions of poor people would miss out. Millions more would steal or even kill to raise the money. Parents might abandon their children because they couldn't or wouldn't pay for them. In short, pandemonium would break out!

In order to make it possible for people to get into heaven, God has done the most logical and the wisest thing - He has paid the full price Himself, and made entry free.

Now it's a strange thing about humans, but many of them don't value something if it's free, so let's see what the cost to God was. The life of His only Son.

The Bible says, "It was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ."
1 Peter 1:18, 19
