Wages and gifts

After Romans 6:15-23

Slaves of sin
are paid a wage,
a wage whose
end is shame
and death.
Slaves of God
receive a gift,
a gift of life,
of life eternal.
A slave of God
is a slave
of righteousness,
the slavery of life.
The gift is free, 
no strings attached.
The gift is a choice,
freely made.
It is a strange thing
that this slavery 
leads to life.
