- Romans 6:23
The Christian’s current state holds greatness and promise. The only problem is that many Christians do not see his or her current state in the same manner. What I mean by “the state of the Christian” is the position in which the believer stands in relation to Christ. Please note our text above. Specifically, focus upon the last part of the verse.
“…but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Read it again if you need to do so. If you are a believer, today, this is where you stand with God. You possess eternal life. You possess God’s free gift (His grace) which comes in the package of the Lord Jesus.
This eternal life never ends. That is why it is called eternal. Some people forget this fact. The gift given by God through Jesus can never diminish or be removed. It is the possession of the believer from the moment of conversion until eternity ends.
