Today's Verse : Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:8


God didn't wait till we were "good enough" to bring us his salvation. Instead, he came when we were most lost and needed his grace the most. But then, that's what love really means by God's definition. It's more than something declared or felt, it's something radically demonstrated.


Holy and loving Father, thank you for demonstrating your love in such powerful and sacrificial fashion. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

  1. He loved us in our poor, unworthy state. We don't qualify for His love. He came down to our level to bring us up to His level. "O glorious God we are forever indebted for your love. We cover ourselves with only you. For you alone can cover us. You alone are enough for us. You are our sufficiency. In you O Lord are we complete. In you O Lord are we made whole. Reign Lord in the whole of our being.
