While We Were Yet Sinners–Romans 5 Part 2

Why not have your victim be your redeemer? When we sinned and were separated from God, the Creator knew that there would only be one way to restore what had been lost—that would his personal sacrifice.  The laws, the offerings, the priests and Levites were all simply preparation for what would be the eventual end—his redemption.

Since God knew the who and the how, he only had to insert the when.  Satan and most of us, would have set the date and the time at a point when men had finally grasped the total uselessness of being “self sufficient” and independent of God.  Sadly, that day would never come.  So, God demonstrate his love for us—in, that while we were yet sinners—CHRIST DIED FOR US!!!

So for us, that means that the one whom should be our accuser, instead became our redeemer—There is no better judge in all the universe—than the judge that will accept you just like you are! What a wonderful day of reckoning–when God looks us in the eye and says,  “Those sins (in my case, plethoric) were bought for a price!”

The one from whom all was taken—sacrificed Himself.  He did so to assure that this wicked lot—us, would be justified, sanctified and ultimately glorified in eternity–with Him.  Now, that is a love story!!!

God Bless You

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
