The ¥1,000 Jacket   

Near my home there is a store that sells large-size clothing, so I went there to buy a jacket. There were two jackets that I liked. After trying on both of them, I chose one of the jackets. Then the sales clerk said to me, “We’re having a sale right now. If you buy a jacket, you can buy one more jacket for only ¥1,000.” When I heard this, I became very happy and bought one more jacket for only ¥1,000.

When a person believes in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, the same kind of thing happens. Of course, that person is saved from the penalty of sin. In the Bible it is written,
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31)
All of the sins of the person who believes in Christ will be forgiven. But that’s not all.

The person who believes in Christ receives peace too. Christ said, Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)

The person who believes in Christ also receives the power to live a positive life. In Philippians 4:13 it is written, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The person who believes in Christ also receives the privilege of being a child of God too. According to John 1:12, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:

To me, being able to buy another jacket for only ¥1,000 was a very good bargain. However, isn’t freely receiving forgiveness of sin and peace and the power to live a positive life and the privilege of becoming a child of God through faith in Jesus Christ the greatest bargain of all?
