The wages of the righteous is life, but the earnings of the wicked are sin and death. Proverbs 10:16
What wages are you earning? Just as with our jobs we earn wages, the same is with life. The wages we earn are based on the fruit we produce. If we, by the blood of Christ, live a righteous life, then we will get the wages of eternal life. But if we live a life of evil and sin, the wages are death (Romans 6:23)
Jesus taught us that every good tree bears good fruit, and bad trees bear bad fruit (Matthew 7:17) These are the wages of your spirituality. If you truly are a disciple of Christ, then the evidence will show in your lifestyle. And as Jesus said “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire” (Matthew 7:19) So the question is what fruit are we producing? What are the wages we are earning?
If we live by the Spirit, we must walk by the Spirit (Galatians 5:25) You can’t walk with God and hold hands with the devil. The true Christian will be made know by their wages and fruit. For God will repay everyone according to their deeds (Romans 2:6) Choose Life, choose Jesus Christ Amen
