For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23, NKJV
This verse is a binary thinker’s paradise offering three choices with two options each. The first choice is between a wage and a gift. A wage is earned but a gift is free.
The second choice is between sin and God. Sin is the source of our wage. God is the source of our gift. Our sinful works earn us one thing. God freely gives us something else.
The third choice is between death and life. The wage we earn through sinful works is death. But the gift we receive by the grace of God is life.
Binary thinker, you’re up. Make your choice. Pick your side. You can either trust in your own sinful works which lead to death or in God’s gracious gift which leads to life. Choose wisely. Your future depends on it.
