Message of the Day: Eternal Life is God’s Gift, Not Wages!
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus Our Lord.” (Romans 6:23, NKJV)
Christ died to save us from our sins, His forgiveness is for the purpose of making us hate our sins. We cannot be servants of sin and servants of Christ at the same time.
This does not mean that we can entirely overcome all our sins and place ourselves beyond the need of mercy. But it does mean that there are two essentially different ways of life: the way of Christ and the way of sin. In our heart we belong to one or the other, but not both.
May we choose the way of Christ so we cam receive and enjoy the eternal life that he offers. This eternal life is for free. Sin pays its wages in full but eternal life is God’s gift not wages!
