Sunday Bible Reading

Romans 6:20-23
For when ye were the servants of sin,
ye were free from righteousness.
What fruit had ye then in those things
whereof ye are now ashamed?
for the end of those things is death.
But now being made free from sin,
and become servants to God,
ye have your fruit unto holiness,
and the end everlasting life.
For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

‘A man may Merit hell, but he cannot Merit heaven.
The apostle does not say that
the wages of righteousness is eternal life:
no, but that this eternal life,
even to the righteous,
is The gracious Gift of God.
And even this gracious gift
comes through Jesus Christ our Lord.
He alone has procured it;
and it is given to all those
who find redemption in his blood.
A sinner goes to hell because he deserves it;
a righteous man goes to heaven
because Christ has died for him,
and communicated that grace
by which his sin is pardoned
and his soul made holy.’ Clarke’s Commentary
