"Act 2:38-40 And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself." And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, "Save yourselves from this crooked generation.""
"@ Thandoxolo Mgalagala . I'm not a preacher. I am just a sinner saved by grace. I'll try to explain this verse of scripture, I hope it helps. Wages are what we earn (like where you work, what you are paid is your wages) so what you earn, for your sin, is death.Someone has to die for our sins. A gift is something that is given to you without you having to work for it.(you don't earn a gift, it is free, without cost to you. allthough someone paid for the gift. the person receiving the gift did not pay or do anything to deserve it. You cannot earn a gift.) God freely gives us eternal life through the Death and resurrection Jesus Christ. We cannot earn, this eternal life, we can only accept this free gift. or We if we choose not to accept Christ death and resurection as payment for our sins, then we must pay for our own sins with our own eternal death. Someone must pay the wages for our sins. Our choice, either Jesus, or we pay with eternal death."

"I love this verse, it somes it all up in a simple way. We deserve death (hell) but Jesus Payed for us to have life (heaven). We do nothing for it it is a gift. It is so empowering. It lifts the spirit knowing i am no longer traped by sin."
"I receive the gift of life in Jesus name.."
"It's amazing how powerful God's work is! It is beautiful! And more real than ever!"
"@Blesing Jakachira. To receive the gift you first Realize you are a sinner and cannot work your way to Heaven. 2nd Believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sin and that He rose again the third day. Then you call upon the name of Jesus repenting of your sin and asking for him to save you and come into your heart."

"The wages of sin is death. The second death that is; we all face the first death, but it is the second one we should really be afraid of. The wages of sin are death, not as some teach eternal damnation in the fire! Fire destroys totally, burnt to ashes, means destruction. Not an eternity of pain and suffering! Would a kind and loving God really make His disobedient creatures suffer all that for a small lifetime of sin?!?"
"This picture is what can do . Beautiful."
