Bible Verse of the Week: Romans 5:6-8

"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 man, though for a good man 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
Still powerless...that is such a good depiction of us. We are powerless to go to Heaven. We can do nothing to be saved. At the Lord's perfect timing for us, Christ died so that we can live eternally. As stated, no one would lay down his life for another man. I believe that a spouse, sibling, or best friend will only go so far for anyone. Test this by asking yourself if you would die, truly die, for someone you love. No one on earth can ever love another as much as God loves him. Christ did the unthinkable to be CRUCIFIED for everyone. God showed us that He loves us so much that He would send His Son to do that for us sinners. I am so grateful to God for sending Jesus to do such a thing for me of which I can never repay. ~Jesselyn
