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

Observation:    Living in the world’s system earns what the pays—death.  But coming into God’s kingdom, one receives what cannot be earned—eternal life!  The value of a man’s work could never be sufficient to purchase eternal life.  It is only offered by grace.  It is only received by faith.    

Application:  God’s life within frees me from the penalty of sin which is hell.  Even more, it frees me from the bondage of sin.  I am no longer sin’s slave!   The life of God within gives me the power and authority to make choices.  Living this life with Him, I can choose not to sin.  I can choose to offer my life to God as His servant.  He loved me and died for me.  I love him and live for Him!  

Prayer:   Lord, I choose to be your servant.  I want to make you look good by the way I live my life as your servant.   Amen
