The gospel is free so everyone can afford it. Its terms are so simple that “wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein” (Isa 35:8). It is a universal offer: all are welcome. If someone asks, “What about Hindus and Muslims?” we answer, “Yes, He invites them too! The gospel is also easy to verify for any serious skeptic: “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” (Ps 34:8). The provision is unlimited in its supply (although it is a limited-time offer) so there is no fear of a shortage in “the unsearchable riches of Christ” (Eph 3:8). And this gift is “one-size-fits-all,” just what every soul needs. It never breaks or wears out. Eternal satisfaction is guaranteed by the Maker: “My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, saith the Lord” (Jer 31:14). In fact this one Gift—God’s beloved Son and life in Him—includes every other gift in one, for we are “blessed…with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” (Eph 1:3).— J.B.N.
