A four-fold picture of the love of God
Wrap your mind around this,
“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us…For if when 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” (Romans 5:6-8, 10).
Think on the love of God shown to us, when, as Paul shows, we least deserved it,
1. We were without strength
2. We were ungodly
3. We were sinners
4. We were God’s enemies
He loved us in that condition. How could He do it? How did He do it? Amazing love!
