For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23).
“If it’s free, it’s for me!” Maybe you’ve heard someone exclaim that at some point. We love free things not just because it doesn’t cost us anything, but also because whether you are Christian or not, we love the idea of grace. The free gift of eternal life in Christ is not just good news because it doesn’t cost anything, but also because we didn’t deserve it. And yet, God gives us life eternal, free of charge, just because He loves us. Because we have this eternal life, we have everything we need now and forever. This is news that is too good to leave unshared. With the things that God has blessed you in this life, please consider how you might support the LWML in its effort to present this free gift in Christ to the world. People not only need to hear this, but they will rejoice when they see the grace of God at work in them through Christ. Jesus has paid out the wages for our sin with His own death on the cross so that He might freely give us His eternal life.
