RESURRECTION GIFT
Bible verse for today
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord ROM 6:23
Comment
Sin gives death as its wages. The Bible says

Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. JAMES 1:15

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned ROM 5:12

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die GEN2:17

However 1 Cor 15:21 states
For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead 1 pet 1:3

The Lord Jesus provides us resurrection -gift in lieu of the death- wages of SIN. The Eternal Life emanates from the Tree of Life, Christ Himself. The resurrection Power of Christ, the Spirit of Life raises us from the seduction and conception of Sin into full grown death.

so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.ROM 5:21 AND

For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection ROM 6:5

The Bible states us ..Likewise you also, reckon or compute yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord ROM 6:11

We are alive in the Spirit, and since we live in the Spirit , we walk every breath in the (pneuma) Spirit having a common union with our Father, Lord Jesus and His Spirit living in the fullness of Love and Joy.

Our Lord and Christ is declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead ROM 1:4 and as Paul we yearn to know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death...

10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death is working in us, but life in you 2 COR 4:10-12
