Christ died for the ungodly – that’s everyone!
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.
Romans 5:6-8 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Notice it says Christ died for the ungodly, that’s not the Christians. He died for those of the world that had not yet received the gift of Grace from God. Jesus didn’t die for us because He had no choice, He died for us because He loved us beyond our comprehension and our own knowledge. Jesus died for us, but not because He had some high hopes for who we are or what we would be. No, He died for us because He knew exactly who we are and what we would be without Him. But praise be to God, we are now God’s righteousness in Him, because He took our sin and gave us God’s grace (2 Corinthians 5:17-21).
Holy Father God, thank You for Jesus, my Savior. No words are adequate to express my love and devotion to You for such an incredible gift! The best I can offer is to present myself a living sacrifice unto You. Father take this earthly vessel and by Your Holy Spirit and power change me into a vessel of honor, one that You can use and flow through to touch Your people. Father, I ask in Jesus name that You continue to use me to Your Glory. Through Jesus I give and live my thanks to You.
