“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. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.”
God made you his friend when you didn’t deserve it; and now he’s living in you to transform your life!
Did your sinfulness keep God from reaching out to you in love and offering you his grace and forgiveness? No. Now consider this — if God loved you enough to show you grace when you were his “enemy”, why wouldn’t he hold you in his grace when you sin now that you are his child? If you’ve sinned, rest assured that God knew that sin was in your future when he first chose to offer you salvation.
And God has not only forgiven you, but he’s also given you himself. He wants to live through you the kind of life you’re unable to live on your own. Will you allow God to live through you today?
