Romans 5:8 Verse of the Day

Have you ever heard someone say “I would take a bullet for him?” What do they mean by that? What kind of person would you be willing to take a bullet for? In the book of Romans, Paul points out that people might be willing to die for a good person, but nobody in their right mind would be willing to die for the sake of a scoundrel.

But this is exactly what Jesus did for us, isn’t it? In case we were ever confused, this verse reminds us of who we were when Jesus died for us: sinners. Jesus didn’t die for us because we deserved it. He died for us because He loved us and wanted to save us. What kind of God would love us enough to be willing to do this for us?

As you consider the love of God expressed through Jesus for you, ask the Lord to give you confidence in your salvation. As you rest in the salvation that is a gift that cannot be lost, worship the Lord for what He has done for you, and ask the Lord to enable you to love others just as He has loved you.
