For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
It says in the beginning portion of Romans 6:23 that the payment of sin is death. That is the penalty of sin. When one continues in sin, the payment for that is death. You die spiritually but praise God there is a remedy.
Jesus carried the sins of the whole world when He died on the cross. He had to die in order to pay for the sins of humanity. It was a physical death that brought us our spiritual life. He was the perfect sacrifice as it was the shedding of His sinless blood that took away the sins of all for all. The blood is still as powerful today as it was on the cross those many years ago. It is still effective to change a person’s life.
God offers a gift that all can receive. You don’t have to try and win it. You don’t have to try and earn it. All you need to do is just believe it and receive it. It is the gift that keeps giving. It gives life that will last forever. No end to it. If you haven’t received that gift today, then there is no time like the present. It is waiting just for you.
Packaged in an innocent man
Undesirable to His own
The flow of scarlet sins
The needed payment
Corruption be gone
The ugliness of our transgression
Grace has overtaken you
Love has won
A host of regenerated souls
Lie waiting for the everlasting kingdom
No longer doomed for the fiery pit
Our feet dancing on the amber glow
Of those golden streets
Lifting praises to the Lamb of God
The stench of hell
The sting of death
The threat of the grave
Is shattered by His mighty sacrifice
