Romans 5:6-8~For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us~
When I really sit and think about that, I am overwhelmed with just how much He really loves us and it is so humbling. We are so consumed with the things of this world that we sometimes forget that it is only temporary. How many of us would give our lives for someone else? Probably not very many of us. Especially if we thought we'd be giving our life for someone who is a liar, murderer, adulterer, thief or anything else we didn't approve of. But Jesus died for us knowing all we have done. He loves us that much. What He asks of us seems like nothing compared to the price He payed for us. Kind of makes you speechless, doesn't it?
Joyfully following Him,
