Free gift of eternal life

For the wages of sin is death,
but the free gift of God is eternal life
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
-Romans 6:23 (RSV)

The power of God to be saved from sin is provided freely, already paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ!
This free gift of eternal life is received by placing personal trusting faith solely in God’s Son Jesus Christ.


The free gift of salvation as desribed from 11 chapters of the Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans from the Holy Bible…

1st chapter
I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes:
– Romans 1:16a (NIV)


2nd chapter
Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness leads you toward repentance?
– Romans 2:4 (NIV)


3rd chapter
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished–
– Romans 3:23-25 (NIV)


4th chapter
Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.
– Romans 4:4-5 (NIV)


5th chapter
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.
– Romans 5:1-2 (NIV)

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
– Romans 5:8-9 (NIV)


6th chapter
For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.
– Romans 6:14 (NIV)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
– Romans 6:23 (NIV)


7th chapter
So, my brothers, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God.
– Romans 7:4 (NIV)


8th chapter
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
– Romans 8:1-2 (NIV)


9th chapter
– in order that God’s purpose in election might stand: not by works but by him who calls –
– Romans 9:11b-12a (NIV)

It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
– Romans 9:16 (NIV)


10th chapter
That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
– Romans 10:9-10 (NIV)

for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
– Romans 10:13 (NIV)


11th chapter
So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.
– Romans 11:5-6 (NIV)


Remember, you cannot earn, work for, pay for or merit this free gift because it is freely given through God’s grace. Grace is the unmerited favor and mercy of God given freely to us.



For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith– and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–
– Ephesians 2:8 (NIV)


Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs.
– Jonah 2:8 (NIV)
