This is beyond me (Romans 5)

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.  Romans 5:6

Take a moment and allow the above verse to sink in for a moment.  Go back and read it again.  Now read it one more time.

How could it be true?  Why would Holy God give His only begotten Son to die on a cross for unholy people?  This is beyond me, I cannot fathom the heights and depths of God’s love.  Think about this brothers and sisters, God demonstrated His love before humanity by dying in our place.

I don’t know how you are feeling at this moment, but I am feeling the weight of His love for someone who is unworthy.  When I consider my sinful life, I have to ask, why did He love me and why does He continue to love me so much?

Would I give my life for someone who is ungodly?  Would I rejoice in loving the unloveable?  Would I have such love in my heart?

Here is the truth brother’s and sisters, even if you or I died for the ungodly, it would not change them.  It was only Jesus’ death that could change them.  Because of what Jesus did, the following is possible:

  • Mankind can have peace with God.

In Christ the curse can be removed and in Christ the wrath of God is satisfied and can be satisfied in your life.  In Christ the debt has been paid and can be applied to your life.  We see this in Romans 5:1, 9-11.

  • Mankind can have a place with God in the heavens.

This place with God gives us access in prayer, by grace, and through faith.  This place with God brings great joy in our lives and gives us eternal hope.  We see this in Romans 5:2.

  • Mankind can have a new perspective with God.

We now see life in a totally new light.  We begin to progress in our lives.  Finally we stand with God when before we would flee from the storms of life.  We now have a testimony of new character we never possessed before.  Now our lives become warrior like in our belief that no weapon formed against us will prosper.

Oh my friend, God’s love is beyond me to understand, but at the same time it is flowing to me and through me because it is coming from the fountain of God in heaven!!!

Isn’t it time that what is beyond you becomes part of you?  Receive His love today!!!
