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 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. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Thank you Jesus for taking my sin and my shame upon Yourself so that I can be reconciled to my Father who created me. I was lost, but now I’m found. I was blind, but now I see. I was an enemy of God, and now I am His child. Thank you for loving me even while I was in the muck and mire of my sin. Amazing love!
