There are few passages in the Bible more powerful than Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. The notes in my Bible say it perfectly, “You are free to choose between two masters, but you are not free to manipulate the consequences of your choice.” Depending on which master you serve, you are paid a different wage. If you choose the master of sin your currency is death, but the currency of righteousness through Christ’s grace from His sacrifice is eternal life. The choice is simple and yet it requires a continuous choice on our parts to live a righteous life through Christ who enables us to do so.
