From the Gospel Daily

Today's Verse

For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus, our Lord. - Romans 6:23

There is nothing simpler or more complex than the heart of this message. It is the basis of the entire Gospel. As sinners, we are dead the moment we are conceived in our mother's womb (Ps 58:3). We enter the world dead in our transgressions and as we live, we let sin reign in our mortal bodies (Ep 2:1-2). There is absolutely no reason why we should be allowed to live in eternity with God. None. We have never done anything worthy of the Lord or worthy of eternity. But praise God! He so loved us that He was willing to give up His life so that we could have life in Him. Who can even fathom the depths of such love? We have no merit before God to say this is what I have done and this is why I should be in eternity. All we can say is, "Lord this is what You have done for me. Thank You for this amazing gift." – Commentary by Sarine Thomas
