Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Sometimes the price of an item is shocking, just fill up your gas tank. Or go car shopping for a new vehicle for a large family. Or take a group of people out to a nice restuarant and pick up the total bill. The Bible says that the wages of sin is death. That’s steep. Of course first and foremost this means that because of sin we all will experience physical death and then deserve spiritual death (separation from God for all eternity). But there are other “deaths” that are part of the price of sin as well. Ask Arnold Schwarzenegger about how adultery caused the death of his marriage, John Edwards about the death of his career. Has your sin ever caused the “death” of your reputation, a relationship, a partnership, or even a ministry. In that split second before we commit a sin let’s all remember to stop and ask, what is this going to cost me?
