Most likely, an obvious result, an expected end… Isn’t the contrast of “life” versus “sin” interesting? And no wonder since sin, not death, is antithetical to life.
But sin has a direction as well. More than a tendency, sin has a definite destination. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
God’s Word changes lives.
