but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (ESV)
Paul makes a very important point in this verse. He highlights a point that we often take for granted. God shows His love for us. He does this every hour, every day, every month, and every year.
Whatever the circumstance we find ourselves or our families are in, God reminds us of His love by directing our attention to the Cross.
God gave His Son. He did this without regard to how we may not appreciate His action. He did it for our ultimate benefit: that we would one day be able to enter heaven and live with Jesus.
We have been, and still are, sinners. We were sinners when He chose to carry out His plan for Jesus. At that time, the disciples didn’t understand the events that unfolded before them. Present day, we don’t always understand what happens right before us. The disciples learned from the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Christ.
As we see things unfold in our world today, may we look at them through the eyes of Christ and learn from these events the lessons we need to incorporate into our lives.
