…but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom 5:8 ESV)
Romans 5:8 tells me that it is possible to love someone who doesn’t love you, and is , in fact, your enemy…but you prove your love by laying your life down for your enemy.
You know not everyone you love will receive this gift of love. They will still hate you and be your enemy. You also know that some of your enemies will receive this gift…and they will truly love you.
God thought it would be worth the risk.
Jesus did too.
If you don’t risk your love, your love isn’t proven to be true or steadfast.
Jesus proved it with His life.
I can’t claim to be worthy of that love…no one can. But Jesus made us worthy when He rose from the dead and gave us life.
We live because He died on our behalf, and He rose again.
We have life because He lives.
Tell someone you love about this Love of God.
Let’s be about it.
I love you in Jesus’ name.
