The Gift of God—Life’s Greatest Treasure
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
In Christ. That is a small phrase, but it is the key that unlocks the door to the largest treasure you will ever know. You see, all that happened to Christ, happened to you.
When He was crucified, you were crucified. When He was buried, you were buried. When He arose, you arose. Christ acted for you. “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30).
A man is never more secure, until he is in Christ. Someone has asked, “What if you lose your salvation?” It can’t happen to a child who is in Christ. Not only does He hold us, we are in Him. Security is not in a place called “heaven,” it’s in a person called “Jesus.”
Today I want you to share Romans 6:23 with five people. Begin praying right now for God to show you these people and ask Him to give you boldness to share. You can even write Romans 6:23 on a piece of paper and give it to them. And before you hand it to them you could say something like, “I would like to give you a gift.”
