The Wages of Sin is Death - The Gift of God is Eternal Life - Romans 6:23

Pondering undeserved grace, Romans 6:23
We should ponder the incredible grace of God and be amazed...

Fifteen years ago, I was with a group of Christians who did a survey of sorts. 

We went to Old Town Ft. Collins, Colorado on a Saturday night and asked passers-by if they had obeyed all of the Ten Commandments. 

Amazingly, 90% said they had. Most also told us they thought they were "good enough" to get into heaven. 

Evangelist Ray Comfort says we should emphasize sin when sharing Christ with proud people and emphasize grace with humble people.

If people hear about grace before understanding their sin, they may not see their need for grace. 

Even those of us who know Christ sometimes forget the meaning of the word.

Today let's ponder the fact that the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life (Romans 6:23). We deserve hell because of our personal sins but we've* received eternal life instead. That's worth pondering daily.

*Those who have chosen to believe and follow Christ.

  2. Gail,
    Before I was married I told my future husband I was a Christian. I also thought I was good! What a wake-up call when I really saw my sin for what it was! Thank God for His mercy and patience with us. Thank you, friend!
