A great reminder Bible study from Kim!
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6: 23
This verse is all about consequences! I have 3 grandsons (3,2, and a 1 year old) and their mothers teach them all about consequences. For every action we take there is a consequence (good or bad), whether we are a toddler or an adult. Our actions dictate our future in this life.
There will be consequences if we are caught shoplifting.
There will be a consequence if we throw a temper tantrum (and we all know how to do
that, even as adults!)
There will be a consequence if we talk back to our parent or our boss!
There will be consequences if we are caught speeding!
There will be consequences if we are unfaithful to our spouse!
There will be consequences if we hit our sibling or get into a brawl.
There are consequences when we are rude, unloving, and mean- it negatively
effects those around us!
There are consequences for getting roped into participating in unhealthy activities.
There are consequences for not taking your medicine and/or not taking care of your
There will be consequences when we divorce!
There are consequences for being too prideful!
There are consequences for not being forgiving!
(Oh, this list could on and on for days!!! )
Our “SS” speaks about consequences, “The wages of sin is death!” That is our consequence!!! It gets right to the point! There is no way around it! Except for the fact, “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Alleluia!
We can’t do anything about the consequences we have in this world from our actions but we are assured that we are forgiven (when we are repentive) and our Father God freely offers us freedom and eternal life with Him, His Son and The Holy Spirit forever and ever!!!
Father God, Help us to LEARN from our actions and consequences! May they be a stepping stone in our walk with You! Lord, we can’t be thankful enough for the gift You offer us! Complete forgiveness from our sins (when we are truly sorry and truly want to cease from behaving in the same way again) and eternal life with the Trinity!!! Thank You Father for Your Great Love!!!!
