The Lord Loves Us


"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Rom. 5:8).

A basic need of humans is to be loved; to have someone who cares for us. Even many doctors recognize the power of "TLC" to help the healing process. It is difficult to define love; it has to be experienced. God has given us the greatest demonstration of love.

As we mature as Christians we come to know the depths of the Lord's love for us. It is not dependent on human standards. As we strive toward spiritual maturity, we come to know that Christ did not die for the perfect. He didn't die for those who had done the most. Paul writes in Rom. 5:6; "You see, just at the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly."......"While we were still sinners."

Because God loved us, He sent His Son to become our Savior. The penalty for our sin had to be paid. This the Lord Jesus did, reconciling us to God by His death on the cross. As we look back to the cross and see Jesus dying there in our place for our sins, taking the punishment we deserved, our hearts should be filled with adoration and worship. "For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconiled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through who we now have received reconcilliation" (Rom.5: 10-11).

It is so powerful to know that the Son of God, who loved me, gave Himself for me. That is the love we need in our lives. If we have it, lets share it with others. Lets demonstrate it by allowing our lights to shine for Him.

Have a wonderful day... make a difference....Love mark Phil. 4:11
