God’s Eternal Present
Romans 6:23 (KJV) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Everything that God offers for humanity, satan has an alternate gift. Here in this verse, God contrasts for our learning the presence of sin and eternal life. Each of these lies at opposing ends of the spiritual spectrum, with one given freely to all by God with no adverse strings attached. The other, an alternative is offered by satan and comes with suffering and death rather than eternal life.
God offers each person the gift of eternal life. Satan, on the other hand, allows a person to wallow in sin, ultimately bringing his or her physical death to light. Sadly, many people exchange an opportunity for living forever to receive the wages of sin, eventually leading to their eternal death with no end.
Now is the time to see and comprehend the gift of God, but do not stop there with head knowledge, go on and reach out and accept this generous gift of God receiving eternal life while God’s gift is available to apply in your life. God will one day no longer offer eternal life, shutting the door to perpetual living and opening wide the gates of Hell for corraling every lost soul to face suffering and death forever.
