For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NLT)
Adam and Eve opened the door to sin when they ate from the forbidden tree. As a result of their choices, we are all born of a sin nature and headed for a path toward death. God loves us so much and wanted to make a way for us to spend eternity with him. He gave the gift of His Son to pay the way for us to enter into a relationship with Him. The debt comes due, and God paid it on our behalf. We just have to accept the free gift.
Prayer: God, thank you that you love me and want to have a relationship with me. I acknowledge Jesus is the Son of God who died for my sins. I ask to be forgiven and choose to make you Lord and Savior of my life. Show me the areas you want me to grow. In Jesus name. Amen.
