Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Romans 6:23

This summer, we’ve been going through some scriptures that show us our need for Jesus. It’s easy in our world to think that as long as we’re pretty good, there’s nothing to worry about. However, that’s not what the Bible teaches us. We see in today’s verse that the wages or payment for sin is death.

Death is what we deserve as sinners. However, I’m so thankful that God doesn’t give me what I deserve or what I’ve earned. Instead, He extends His grace and His mercy. God chose to give us eternal life.

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)

We don’t deserve it, but God saw fit to give us eternal life in Jesus. That’s good news. The gospel isn’t about following rules or doing enough. It’s about how we could never do enough, and instead, we need to fall at the feet of Jesus and accept His love and mercy. It’s through Jesus only that we find eternal life.

Today’s Truth: The Gospel isn’t about following rules, it’s about falling at the feet of Jesus and accepting His love and mercy.

No other religion can offer what Jesus can. Only Jesus can make you truly free and allow you to experience eternal life in Him.

So today, spend some time thinking about this verse. Take a moment to thank God for not giving you what you deserved (death) but instead extending mercy to you, and giving you eternal life in Jesus.
