For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Rom 6:23
In life, there are things you cannot ignore. Gravity may be invisible, yet it is at work in everything. A sin maybe hidden, but as the scripture above says, its wages will soon cash in. There is no sin committed that ever goes unpunished. In the Old Testament, animals were killed for the atonement of the sins people committed. However, this still was not sufficient to acquit people of their sins.
Today God has given us the option; either we take on ourselves the punishment of sins we have committed or we accept someone else that God has chosen to take the punishment for our sins. One way or the other, sin must be punished.
To anyone who receives the gift of God of eternal life, Christ has bore the punishment of his or her sins. When Christ died on the cross, He died as a sacrifice of sin for those who believe in Him, that they may no longer stand guilty before God. Christ served the sentence of their crimes and justly completed it by His death on the cross. As a sign of acceptance, God raised Jesus back to life that all who believes in Him should live in the newness of life as Christ.
That offer is still available for you today. You and I can enjoy this gift of God in this life today. You have no reason to endure the suffering caused by sin when God has offered you a life of peace and joy. All you have to do is to accept Jesus Christ as your savior and live the life He has offered you in His word.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank
you for your word. Today I
choose the gift of God of eternal
life in Christ Jesus. I renounce
Satan and all his ways. I apply
the blood of Jesus upon my
mind, in Jesus name, amen
