Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 6:23(KJV); For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The wages of sin is death.
However, God balances the equation and tells us that the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
There are many people who are stuck in the first part of this scripture. They are always conscious of the “power” of sin and it’s consequences.
This is the basis on which they relate with God; how they commune; how they serve Him and how He is preached.
God wants you to look at the second part of that scripture and make it the focus of your consciousness.
The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
The life that we have received in Christ has the ability to destroy any weakness, its consequences and the power to continue in that weakness.
That life works effectually to kill whatever you are battling with in the flesh. This does not mean in any way that we underestimate sin and abuse our liberty in Christ.
Set your eyes on what Christ has done and has given to us. Focus on what saves and not on what kills; Take your eyes from what you have done and meditate on the glory of the gift of eternal life.
God’s name be praised!

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this Word. I have received the gift of eternal life and it works in me mightily. The life that I have, destroys sin in my flesh; overcomes weakness and supplies strength for me to live in accordance with the perfect will of God. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
