Romans 5: 8
This text reminds us of the amazing love of God toward us.. Christ did not wait to see if we would be good, before He died for us, but He died for us even though He knew that we could not be good on our own. So He gave His life, so that His righteousness could be placed on us! Why would anyone not be grateful for that! Why would anyone reject His Love? Why? Because those who reject Him, love themselves just like they are. They do not want the change that Christ will give them. They do not want to submit to Him. They are deceived by their own ideas of this world. They do not realize they are being held captive in their minds by the demons of Hell.
Friends, let’s pray for them today. Do you have someone to pray for? Pray diligently and consistently for them. And then, when God reaches down and removes their blinders, show them the way of love, forgiveness, and grace. Love them like Christ loves you.
Father, we so need you again today.. Give us a burning desire to know you more. Give us a burden for the lost. Hear our pleas for mercy on them. Shine your grace on them like you did on us. Thank you for Jesus, who set us free before we were ever born. Thank you for the blood He shed on that old cross, to take my sin away..
Verse 8 “…but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
