What’s the difference between a wage and a gift?

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
            A wage is what you’re paid for your services.  A gift is an expression of love.
            We earn our wage of sin through our sinful choices.  The wage we receive is death.
            Jesus wants to erase those wages and give us a gift instead, eternal life.  We can’t earn a gift or it’s not a gift.  Jesus paid the price in full and we can only accept it, never believing that we earned it.  It’s all an expression of love.
            Why work for sin any longer when you can receive a gift of eternal life?
