Life: 5×7″ Card and Picture

August 12, 2010

By this the love of God was made manifest in our case,

because God sent forth his only-begotten Son into the world that we might gain life through him.

The love is in this respect, not that we have loved God,

but that he loved us and sent forth his Son as a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins.

1 John 4:9, 10

“What is a ransom? The idea of a ransom basically involves two things. First, a ransom is the price paid to bring about a release or to buy something back. It might be compared to the price paid for the release of a prisoner of war. Second, a ransom is the price that covers, or pays, the cost of something. It is similar to the price paid to cover the damages caused by an injury. For example, if a person causes an accident, he would have to pay an amount that fully corresponds to, or equals, the value of what was damaged.
How would it be possible to cover the enormous loss that Adam inflicted on all of us and to release us from slavery to sin and death? Let us consider the ransom that Jehovah provided and what this can mean for you.”

from the book “What Does the Bible Really Teach”, published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.

This book contains a chapter on the ransom sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and answers the questions: What is the ransom? How was it provided? What can it mean for you? and How can you show that you appreciate it? Important questions and wonderful answers, drawn only from God’s truth, the Bible. I warmly encourage you to get a copy of this book and read about the ransom, God’s greatest gift. It is available without charge by clicking on the Watchtower button in the sidebar and then on Publications.  (top right-hand corner)

You can print this out as a card or as a picture. 5×7″ is a fairly standard picture frame size, so the picture in the file is 5×7″. However, the card blanks I use are metric so the equivalent for this card size is 128x178mm.
