“But now that you have been freed from sin and enslaved to God, the advantage you get is sanctification. The end is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:22-23
Jesus frees us from sin and into relationship with God. In love with God we desire to serve God in holiness. Serving God isn’t work for which one receives a wage, it is a response to the free gift of grace. The free gift of life forever with Jesus sure sounds better than the wages of sin is death. I’ve worked hard for many things in my life, would hate to face God and find I’ve worked hard for death. Thankfully Jesus ensures we can be freed from sin and its wages. Turn to Jesus and live.
