A Sure Investment

One year ago the stock market peaked at a record high.  Yesterday, it plunged 679 points, deepening the current financial crisis.  This was the sixth day in a row in which the Dow suffered a triple-digit loss.  Since the peak one year ago, "frozen credit, record foreclosures, cascading job losses and outright fear have seized the market and sapped 39 percent of its value." *

In the midst of these financial woes, Eddy Gilpin asks, "What if, during these uncertain times, you could be offered a sure investment – one that would absolutely pay the greatest dividends and guarantee the safety of your capital outlay?"  I am interested, aren't you?

GOOD NEWS: There is such an offer!

This offer does not consist of those things that are material and temporal, but with those that are spiritual and eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).  This offer centers in eternal, heavenly treasures, not the fleeting treasures that this world has to offer.

Jesus said, "Do NOT lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your TREASURE is, there your HEART will be also" (Mat 6:19-21).

"What a plan! " writes Eddy Gilpin.  "A guarantee of EVERYTHING you have invested; a SURE thing in times of uncertainty; an unparalleled return on your investment – and ALL backed by the greatest 'Guarantor' ever!..
There are no market fluctuations that can alter it, no 'runs on the bank' that can stop it, no corrupt politicians that can destroy it, no institutions that can crash it, and no panic that can devalue it.  It is the only SURE investment we can make."

The offer has been made by God through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Due to 
our sin, we are "bankrupt" in debt.  But due to His great love, God sent Jesus to 
"
pay the price" for our sins by dying on the cross on our behalf (2 Corinthians 5:21).  "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" (Ephesians 1:7).

To accept God's offer, we must: believe in Jesus (Acts 16:30-31), turn from our sins in repentance (Acts 17:30-31), confess Jesus before men (Romans 10:9-10), and be baptized (immersed) in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins (Acts 2:38).  Then, when we continue to follow Him faithfully, He will continue to "erase our debt" (1 John 1:7).

Don't put your trust in uncertain riches! Accept God's offer of salvation and eternal, heavenly treasures today!  

It IS the only SURE investment you can make!
