Wages of sin (Romans: 6:23)

bible verse

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

meaning

origin and application

Sin is a crucial concept in Christianity. What is sin? Sin is an offense or violation that turns us away from God. Sins are not only wrongdoings or misdeeds, but can be some shameful inclinations, such as pride, covetousness, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy, and sloth.
“Wages” is a metaphor in this expression, meaning the result of sin, which is death. If people continue to commit immoral acts or thinking, this will only lead them to death in the final judgment. According to Paul the apostle who wrote this verse in the Book of Romans, those who believe in Jesus Christ will be freed from sin. They will also receive a gift from God—eternal life.
