"For the wages of sin is death; but ..."
What comes next, Bible scholars?
"...the gift of God is eternal life..."
There's more! What comes next?
"...through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Romans 6:23 goes right along with today's Good Word from the previous chapter of Paul's letter.
"Therefore being justified by ..."
- All of our good deeds
- How long we've been serving God
- The number of people we've led to Christ
- How much money we tithed
No. Being justified by faith, we have peace with God. Translation: Christ's sacrifice on our behalf satisfies God's justice, and we are no longer the sinful enemies of God but His repentant, devoted children.
Thank God for the plan of salvation through Jesus Christ!
