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. – Romans 5:6-8
I just saw something in this verse that I hadn’t thought about before. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. So a good person is given more value in the world than a moral and virtuous one? This makes me consider the definitions of both words good and righteous. Something to think about today.
What matters most is what God did. He died for all. The good and the bad were covered by Jesus’ blood. There was no measuring up if we were worthy of his love and salvation. He just did it. There is no greater love.
Prayer: Jesus, I thank you for your sacrifice in love for me. I pray that I can demonstrate your love to others today. Amen
