Romans 5:8 (NIV) says: "God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
The Message puts it this way: "God put His love on the line for us by offering His Son in sacrificial death while we were no use whatever to Him."
Either way, WOW!!! And He doesn't stop there!
In Romans 8:32, He goes on to say: "He Who did not spare His Own Son, but gave Him up for us ALL---how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us ALL things."
NOW THAT'S GRACE!!!
In verse 34, it says that Christ (Who gave up His very life for us) is at the Father's right hand interceding for us, praying on behalf of all of us though we are the very ones that made His death necessary.
NOW THAT'S LOVE!!!
Why do we so often fight against Him Who loves us so much?
