If we receive death as our payment for sin, we're only being paid what we're owed -- sin is rebellion against the God who loves us and gave us his most precious gift to redeem us from sin! But God's gift is free -- eternal life in Jesus Christ. We could not earn it, deserve it, or demand it. So God offered it by grace.
The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
— Romans 6:23
Dear Lord, thank you for loving us when no one else could or would. Thank you for sacrificing the most precious gift of heaven so we could join you there. Of all the gifts we've ever received, yours is the best. We offer praise to you! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
