In today’s reading we come across one of the most powerful verses in the Bible and a foundation of our faith: Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. We are welcome to choose between a life of sin and the gift of God through Jesus Christ. While choosing Christ does not completely eliminate the sin from our life, it does eliminated the eternal consequences. Choosing to live a life of sin has only one wage; death. Without the acceptance of God’s gift to us through Christ, we are left with nothing but death. Choose life!
