1 Thessalonians 5:9-10

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

Our salvation through Christ gives us the gift of eternal life with Christ. This salvation is the best gift that we can receive. There is no greater sign of love than when Christ gave himself up for us. Because of this love let us do our best to return it by serving him and following his commandments. If we do that we will be able to live together forever.
