Consider the Reality
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God which the Bible calls sin. There is no one who is innocent. Romans 3:10-18 gives a detailed picture of what sin looks like in our lives. It is our sin that separates us from God. Are you able to admit this?
Consider the Consequences
Romans 6:23 teaches us about the consequences of sin: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death! But God is so good that He made a way for us to be forgiven and live forever. Can you believe it?!
Consider the Gift
Romans 6:23: “But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 5:8 declares, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus Christ died for us! Jesus’ death paid for the price of our sins, because He was God in the flesh, without any sin. At the cross he took our punishment that we deserved for our sins, but that was not the end. Jesus’ resurrection proves that God accepted Jesus’ death as the payment for our sins. Why does this matter to you?
Receive the Gift
Romans 5:1 has this wonderful message: “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God. Romans 8:1 says, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins. Finally, we have this precious promise of God from Romans 8:38-39: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
