<274> Thesis: Getting the future reality firmly in mind makes a significant contribution to life in the present reality. Introduction: This evening we are going to give some thought to Paul's concluding comment in the Romans Six stage of the revelation of the Gospel of God. It may well be one of the most often quoted verses of the New Testament when "evangelism" is on stage, but it's setting is clearly "edificational". In other words, unbelievers are not the only ones who need to get the contrast of Romans 6:23 firmly in focus. In fact, they are not even in the picture of Romans Six. This means that we, as believers, have the greater need to understand the contrast between wages and gifts.
