Muslims, who are never really sure that they are acceptable in Gods sight, try to earn that assurance by dying a martyr's death while killing infidels. Church people try to earn God's love by being baptized, or taking Communion, or giving their money. Atheist say why try because when we die its all over. All of these ways end in emptiness and judgment. God said that there is none righteous, no not one. He also said that all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags. And He said the soul that sins (that's everyone) will be separated from Him and spend an eternity in pain and anguish. No hope! No chance! No way to earn or deserve anything but Hell.
That's a pretty bleak outlook unless you know the rest of the story. Paraphrasing John 3:16 which says God loved all humanity so much that He gave His one and only Son Jesus Christ to die on a cross for our sins and if we believe that He paid our sin debt and that He rose from the dead any human being may be saved. Eph 2:8-9 says that we are saved by grace through faith and that its a gift from God and not anything we do. God has a gift, the greatest gift, the mostly costly gift, the most unique gift in eternity for us.... SALVATION through the finished work of His Son. Have you received this free gift?
If Not it's yours for the asking. But there is a catch to it. When He gives you this gift He takes your sin and gives you a new heart. He gives you a desire to live a life that is pleasing to Him. He gives you love for your enemies. He gives you strength to say no to sin and yes to Him. He changes your life forever. What a gift.
