If we have lived long enough and are honest with ourselves, we know that something is not right with us and the world. Scripture tells us the problem is sin. Some people are better at sinning than others, but the outcome of a life of sin is a bad deal. In fact, check out what the Bible says…
READ: Romans 6:23
The first part of that passage says the the outcome (the wages) of a life filled with sin, is death. Just like when you work for someone, in return for your labor, they promise you money (a wage) for your services. The principle of living in sin…or working for sin…is the same: “the wages of sin is death.“ Yikes!
But there is good news if you are tired of working for the “boss” of sin.
“The wages of sin is death BUT….[and that but is huge!]..the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The good news is that Jesus has come to rescue us from a life of labor for sin. He comes to offer you and I a gift. We just have to receive it.
Do you know how to receive it? If you don’t check this out. But, before you do why don’t you talk to God and thank him for what he has done for you.
PRAY: “God thank you for giving me a way out from a life of being a slave to my sin. And Jesus I really want to know the gift that you offer and I long to receive it.
