“While we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.” ~ Romans 5:6
Day 20: Love is Jesus Christ
We are all imperfect people.
We all sin.
We all make mistakes
We all fail sometimes.
We all have flaws.
Despite all of our short comings and disobedience – God still love us!
Jesus proved God’s love for us on the cross.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." ~ Romans 5:8
We don’t have to work for God’s love. We don’t have to earn it. We can’t. It’s a gift freely given to us. All we have to do is accept it.
Once we begin to understand the love God has for us; we can begin to share that love.
To love our spouse even when they may not act lovable. To see past the flaws and imperfections and still love. To give them the grace and blessings of that love. To share with them the True Love we have found in Christ.
TODAY’S DARE: DARE TO TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD. DARE TO TRUST JESUS CHRIST FOR SALVATION. DARE TO PRAY, “LORD JESUS, I’M A SINNER. BUT YOU HAVE SHOWN YOUR LOVE COR ME BY DYING TO FORGIVE MY SINS, AND YOU HAVE PROVEN YOUR POWER TO SAVE ME FROM DEATH BY YOUR RESURRECTION. LORD, CHANGE MY HEART, AND SAVE ME BY YOUR GRACE.”
I opened my heart to God’s grace and love some time ago. But I still sometimes need to remind myself of exactly how much God loves me. And how that love was shown through Christ. And to ask him to continue to change my heart and lead me in His will.
“In His love and in His mercy He redeemed them.” ~ Isaiah 63:9
