If you are a sinner, which you are, I am about to scare you to death, literally!
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Are you scared? I am! The wages, or reward, of sinning is death, so we are all doomed since we are all sinners as I pointed out last week. So there is no hope, because we cannot refrain from sinning. But…
…Read the second part of the verse, and you are given a GIFT of eternal life through the sacrifice that your Saviour Jesus Christ made on the cross. He died on the cross for us, so that even though we sin, if we ask for forgiveness and believe in Him, He will forgive our sins AND give us the gift of eternal life.
I’ve found MY loving God. Have you?
