1 evangelism Romans 6:23

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

3 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES It is something that you earn or deserve.

4 WAGES How would you define the term wages? It is something that you earn or deserve. How would you feel if your boss refused to pay you the wages that were due you? Deep down we all know that it is only right that a person gets what he deserves. We earn wages from God for how we have lived our lives.

5 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES Sin is more of an attitude than an action; it can be a hostile or apathetic response towards God. SIN

6 What comes to your mind when you hear the word sin? How would a person have to live in order to get into heaven? Sin is more of an attitude than an action; it can be a hostile or apathetic response to God. At any point in your life, has God seemed far away? Our sin creates a distance between us and God.

7 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES Death actually means separation. SIN DEATH GOD HELL

8 DEATH What thoughts come to your mind when you think of death? Death actually means separation. When we die, our soul is separated from our body. If a person chooses to reject God while he is alive, that separation will ultimately result in eternal torment in hell. Not only will he experience separation from God today, but also forever.

9 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES There is hope! SIN DEATH GOD BUT

10 This is the most important word in the verse because it indicates that there is hope for all of us. What we have talked about so far is bad news, but God has good news. What we are going to talk about now is a contrast to what we have discussed.

11 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES A gift is given because you love someone and not because of what they do. SIN DEATH GOD BUT GIFT

12 What is the difference between a gift and wages? A gift is given because you love someone and not because of what they do. How do you feel toward someone who gives you an expensive gift? Some people try to earn Gods favor by doing good deeds, living moral lives, or taking part in religious activities. But it is impossible to earn something that has already been bought.

13 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES God is the giver of the gift. SIN DEATH GOD BUT GIFT GOD

14 God is the giver of the gift. I cant give it to you; a church cant give it to you. No one can give you this gift but God alone. Why do you think God would want to give you a gift? Why does anyone want to give someone a precious gift?

15 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES Experiencing life with God forever. SIN DEATH GOD BUT GIFT GOD ETERNAL LIFE

16 What do you think eternal life is? Eternal life would be experiencing life forever with God. Life is communion with God. Just as separation from God starts in this life and extends into eternity, eternal life starts now and goes on forever. No sin can end it.

17 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES The one and only Son of God. SIN DEATH GOD BUT GIFT GOD ETERNAL LIFE JESUS

18 JESUS CHRIST Jesus is the means by which we can obtain the gift of eternal life. The one and only Son of God. No one can offer the gift except the one who purchased it. He purchased it by paying for it with his life.

19 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES Jesus is in control of your life. SIN DEATH GOD BUT GIFT GOD ETERNAL LIFE JESUS LORD

20 The gift is offered to everyone who makes Jesus Lord. For Jesus to the Lord, He has to have the total control of a persons life.

21 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV) WAGES Confess your sins to God and surrender your life to Him. SIN DEATH ETERNAL LIFE GOD GIFT Confession Surrender GOD JESUS LORD BUT

22 CONFESSION and SURRENDER To CONFESS means to agree with God that we are not perfect, that there are things in our lives that are wrong, and that we want Christ to forgive us as we turn away from our sins. To SURRENDER means to allow Christ to be the final authority in our lives and to live in order to please Him and not ourselves. It doesnt mean that we have to be perfect, but that we will try our best to please Christ.

23 Dear Lord, I confess that I have sinned and dont deserve to be with you in heaven. I believe that Jesus died to pay the price of my sins. Please forgive me, come in to my heart, and help me to live for you from now on. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
