Eight Things offered by Jehovah for salvation

God offered us all blessings without money.
Water, Milk, Wine, Bread and other benefits here must be understood as pertaining to spiritual things instead of natural and material.

They are the only things bought without money. Furthermore the invitation is from God who is not in the business of selling material things.  But, He does have the business pictured figuratively by these terms. The cry of the verse is the common in the East where water, wine, milk and bread are sold.

But does God mean about these benefits?
What does the Scripture say about these things? 

Praise God; Jesus is the most important figure in all of human history. He is God in flesh ({bible}John 1:1, 14{/bible}; {bible}Col. 2:9{/bible}), physically risen from the dead, Lord ({bible}Luke 24:34{/bible}; {bible}John 2:19-21{/bible}) and Savior ({bible}Acts 5:30-32{/bible}). He came to die for sinners ({bible}Rom. 5:8{/bible}) to deliver people from the righteous wrath of God upon us.

Are you a sinner?

11.30stress.jpg I ask you, are you a sinner? Have you ever lied, stolen, lusted, coveted, or been angry with someone unjustly? If so, then you have broken the Law of God. God has said "You shall not steal; You shall not lie; You shall have no other gods before Me; You shall not murder, etc.," ({bible}Exodus 20{/bible}) He has given the standard of righteousness, and if you have broken any of God's commandments then you have fallen short of that standard and are under the inevitable judgment of God. When you die, you will face Him and on the Day of Judgment He will punish all sinners.

Entering in to the Kingdom of God

How can you enter the Kingdom?
Bishop Augustine But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you" (Mathew 6:33)

Salvation through Jesus' life, death and resurrection is central to the gospel message. Jesus Christ died, was buried and was resurrected for a reason: so we could inherit everlasting life in the Kingdom of God ( John 3:16 ).

This astounding part of the gospel – the entering into the Kingdom of God, is the aspect so few do understand. It is synonymous with salvation. Without understanding this part of the gospel, one cannot understand what salvation is.

Do you know how to enter this Kingdom, to attain the salvation of which the Bible speaks?
