"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom 6:23
Another word for wages is cost or price. The price of sin is death. Many people have heard this statement before, but like Eve in the Garden of Eden, many of them fall for that old "You're not really going to die" trick. We mistake God's Grace period and actually think that we will never have to actually pay the price for sin. Don't get it twisted fam, payday always comes...and those times when you know it should have come but didn't...it wasn't because you are cool like that...it wasn't your skill or your street cred that got you through it was the Grace and the Goodness of God.
The Bible makes is clear that God's true desire is that no one should have to pay the cost of sin and He has offered His Son as a stand in to pay that price on our behalf. Let's stop tricking ourselves and each other cause in the end the only trick is gonna be you!
Today's Challenge: Whether anyone else knows or not you know about the sin in your life. Beginning today stop making excuses and take advantage of God's Grace, recognize that you have been sinning, Repent (which simply means turn away from) and receive God's Grace and allow Him to help you live life the way He truly intended for you to...Ya Heard!
