The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Rom 6:23.
Everyone earns his due wage through long years of ceaseless sinning, paid out in full at the end of your time. Man has gone to extensive lengths to try and avoid the inevitable, or at least delay it as long as possible.
God is offering eternal life for free though, all we need to do is come to Him through Jesus Christ, His son. All we need to do is embrace the truth that Jesus lived a sinless life and died on the cross for all our sins. When we accept this, God will be more than willing to give us the gift of eternal life.
