People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:23


Ro 6:23 The wages of sin [is] death, one of the saddest, but profoundest truths of the world. Sin is a master of his servant and pays wages. But the gift of God [is] eternal life. God gives to those who turn from sin, life eternal. It is his gracious gift, conditioned on refusing to be the servant of sin longer, and is "through Jesus Christ our Lord".

    God gives us two roads life and death Deuteronomy 30 19 . If we reject Jesus and choose to walk in the pathway of unrighteousness, then the payment is death. God says why die before your time? Sin is sending people to an early grave and robbing people of true joy and peace. But then, after the physical death, will be that eternal death which is in hell. But, those who choose the right road, the road of Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth and the liffe, they will experience joy unspeakable, full of glory. Life will be joyous and peaceful when we walk with the Lord. Then, after this life is over, we are guaranteed eternal salvation to be with God forever and ever. Amen

    When do u suppose the white horse appears in the apolcylips
  • BSP on Romans 6:23
    This verse is a sad reality. No one has been able to escape being a slave to sin and this leads to us all receiving what sin pays and that is death. The only hope that we have is based on God's undeserved kindness that he willingly gave us in the sacrifice of his Son, Jesus Christ. When we really take time to meditate and think about what God has done for us, we should really be grateful and show our gratitude by the way we live our lives.
  • Kellen on Romans 6:23
