In His Praise — March 3, 2024

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

Some may say that there is no such thing as ‘free anything”. Admittedly, with mankind there usually is a hidden catch. Anything that sounds too good to be true, usually is just that — not true.

We have been conditioned to be alert to scams, tricks and deceit. We stay on our guard to prevent being taken advantage of or making a bad choice that we will regret later. 

In Romans 6:23 though we read about a choice that we can make, which really should be a no-brainer. We all are given this choice. We can either reject Jesus and live in sin which will pay us with eternal death in hell; or we can accept God’s free gift of salvation through Jesus and receive forgiveness for our sins and eternal life in heaven.

God’s offer is not a trick or a scam or a lie. He makes this offer because of His great love for us. John 3:16 gives us that assurance. Further in Romans , chapter 10, we are told how easy and simple it is to receive this salvation -“confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved.” (verse 9, paraphrased)

If you do not know Jesus as your Savior, please do not reject God’s offer another day. It is real, it is trustworthy and you will never regret it.
