Praying for 30 days- day 9

Today's verse from my book Today I Pray by Stonecroft ministries is Romans 6:23 with the 22nd verse added.
"But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jeus our Lord."

God, I pray that _______ will receive the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ the Lord.

So today's verse was super awesome because it challenged the way I use to look at it. Roman 6:23 is always associated with salvation but technically it isn't. I always thought that the eternal life in Romans 6:23 is when you die you will go to heaven and live eternally with God in heaven. Yes, eternal life does mean that but not in the case of this verse. Eternal life is meant on how you live your life now here on earth. John 10:10b states how Jesus wanted to give life and give it more abundantly. That is what the previous verse in Romans 6 says, that when we become slaves of God our life bears fruit which leads to holiness and ultimately life abundantly. Kinda cool.
