Today's Verse: Romans 5:8

Friday, May 8, 2020

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
— Romans 5:8

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God didn't wait till we were "good enough" to bring us his salvation. Instead, he came when we were most lost and needed his grace the most. But then, that's what love really means by God's definition. It's more than something declared or felt, it's something radically demonstrated.

My Prayer...

Holy and loving Father, thank you for demonstrating your love in such powerful and sacrificial fashion. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
