“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person–though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die–but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”(ESV).
Jesus died for the ungodly. That is, we were not pious and reverent. Jesus didn’t die because we were spiritual enough. Jesus died while we were weak. He didn’t die because we were strong enough. Jesus died while we were still sinners. He didn’t die because we measured up enough. He didn’t look down and say, “For all of you who make the grade, pass the final cut, stand out and measure up, I’m sending my Son.” Jesus died for you, He died for me by virtue of nothing about us, but about God’s love for us. God loves you. You are worth a Son to God.
Most of the time, I think I’m not worth much. I need to read this passage everyday to remind me that to God, I was worth so much, He sacrificed His Son to buy me back from the devil when I so willingly sold myself into his bondage.
Thank you God for loving me. Help me love You.
Keep the faith and keep reading,
