Ro 6:23 ...the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The word "gift" here in the Greek means a FREE gift. All gifts are free. Paul wanting to emphasize the gratuitous nature of salvation had to say: "This is a free gift."

There are many impossible things in the world; one of them is the earning of a free gift. It is absolutely impossible to earn what is freely given. And yet millions today are attempting the impossible. They want to work for salvation. They want to earn heaven.

To earn a free gift is a contradiction in terms. If it is earned, then it is not free. If it is a free gift, then it is something that must be freely received. Because freely given things are freely received, not labored for and earned.
