Reminders

It's nice to be reminded of things sometimes. As a reminder, Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

That's right. Our sins against God earn us death. Not only that, but it earns us an eternal punishment (John 3:18, Revelation 20:10). But through faith in Jesus of Nazareth, God incarnate (John 1:1-5, 14; Titus 2:13; etc), we have a substitute, a propitiation, for our sins. The sinless One took the sins of humanity on Himself so we might have eternal life (John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 1:21, etc).

It's not hard and it's available for all.

Just a reminder.
