This week I want to focus in on Romans 5:6-11. When looking in at these verses we have written out for us the message of the hope we have in Jesus for salvation. I want to leave you with it, and ask you to dwell on it for a while. Think about what this means for you as an individual, but also for the church. We have this great hope, and with it, it should transform our lives and compel us to share it with others, both individually and together as the church. So here it is, Romans 5:6-11 (NASB) -
For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in Go through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
So again, I ask you to dwell on these words, soak them in, and praise God for our hope that we have!
