Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

About This Product

Richard Redding received a monthly bill in the mail for heating his small Texas home. It made his eyes just about pop out of his head. The bill was for $24,000,000,000. His initial shock turned to unbelief, and then relief as he quickly figured out the bill must be some kind of error. When he contacted the utility company, they were embarrassed and apologized for their mistake.

Someday each one of us will have to give an account of himself to God. The price people will pay for sin is astounding. It is important for you to know that sin has an enormous price tag attached to it. Unlike the bill Mr. Redding received, there is absolutely no mistake about it.

God in His Word says, “The wages of sin is death.” Death has a double aspect. The physical part of death is when a body and a soul are separated. Death also has a spiritual aspect which is far more terrible. This takes place when a soul is separated from God because of sin and cast out of His presence for all eternity. An eternity spent in the darkness of hell is the price tag for sin. It is a price that every soul which dies without the Saviour will pay. Every misery in this lifetime is made lighter because of the hope that relief may come. The miseries in hell will be greater than any experienced on earth because there will be no hope of change and no hope that things may ever get better. So intense will the misery of lost souls be in hell that they will continually “gnash” or grind their teeth in pain and anger. “Cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 25:30), the Lord Jesus solemnly spoke.

God doesn’t desire the spiritual death of any man. He earnestly desires that all men turn from their sin. Listen to what He said through Ezekiel: “Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die?” No matter how dark your past may have been, God invites you to find a new life in Christ. On the cross the Lord Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice for sin. He died for sinners so that all who believe on Him should never have to collect the fearful wages of sin for themselves. When a person comes to Christ and confesses Him as their Saviour, the blood that was shed on Calvary washes away their every stain of sin and makes them fit for heaven.

“The wages of sin is death” is just half a verse. The second half reads, “But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).  It cost the life of the Lord Jesus for God to be able to offer this stupendous gift to lost sinners. It was a cost God was willing to pay because of His love to lost souls. Seeing He has done this on your behalf, can you turn Him away and continue to live as a stranger to His grace?

Maybe Mr. Redding laughed a little bit about the bill after he figured out it was a mistake. But the price souls will have to pay for never coming to the Saviour is nothing to laugh about. Take the warnings in the Bible seriously. Only by coming to the Lord Jesus by faith can you ever avoid having to collect the terrible wages of sin for yourself. The Lord Jesus is the sinner’s only hope. Will you take Him as your Saviour?
