Today was gift mailing day for me. As I wrapped each one and tied bows on, I thought about the ONE Gift, the only one that matters.
When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But then what return did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? The end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the return you get is sanctification and ints end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
