Think about it. Today’s verse may make you wonder if you would be willing to die for someone or not. For most of us, it is not an easy answer. We probably have lots of if this, if that, under certain conditions; all questions that we would want answered before a decision would be made. Even if we think we would be willing to die for someone, would we would really be able to do such a thing? Hopefully we will never have to find out. However, thankfully, Jesus was not only willing and able to do that for us, He did it. Such a love, may we all know. I am assuming He must have felt that what was at stake, our eternal life in relationship with God, was worth the sacrifice? May we show our gratitude by continuing to follow Jesus.
Verses: Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
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.
