Message of the Day: Christ Died for Sinners
Text: Romans 5:1-11
Key Verse: Romans 5:8
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8, NKJV)
When God justifies us, he brings us into a relationship of peace with himself. In his grace he accepts them into his holy presence, and assures them of one day sharing his glory. Our anticipation of future glory is what the Bible calls hope. Hope in this sense is not a mere wish for something, but the expectation of something that is certain.
It is an assured belief that enables us to persevere through difficulties, and in the process develop our Christian character. We have purpose and confidence in this perseverance because the love of God fills our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
This same love caused Jesus Christ to give his life for us sinners. We may at times hear of someone who would give his life for a good person, but Christ died for those who are bad. He died for sinners. In his death Jesus bore the full wrath of God so that sinners might escape it and be reconciled to God. But Jesus triumphed over death, so that those whom he reconciles are guaranteed a victorious salvation, both in the present life and in the life to come.
