Day 79: The Difference Between a Paycheck And A Gift...

For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord. ~Romans 6:23

Since we are getting closer to Resurrection Day, or what some of you might call Easter, I thought this was too nice to not share.

"What is the difference between a paycheck and a gift? You earn a paycheck, but you receive a gift. In Romans 6:23, Paul teaches that the payment, the unavoidable consequence we earned because of our sin, is death. What a relief that God offers to every individual the gift... something we cannot earn... of eternal life in Jesus Christ. If you haven't received God's gift of eternal life, I encourage you to ask Him for it. He will gladly give it to you!"

I am so thankful that my payment has been covered... how about you?
