You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
How many songs of our society cry out to “find love in a hopeless place,” and yet, so many are still left crying out for genuine love after the next person lets them down. The search then continues for genuine love: love that does not fade, love that does not falter, and love that does not fail in the storms of life.
There is love that perseveres through times of pain, loneliness, and even abandonment by all who were thought to be friends and those who loved. How good would it be if instead of looking to each other for love, we looked to the only person who was/is/and ever will be the epitome of what love is and how it is to be viewed!
This kind of love is only found in the person and work of Jesus Christ the altogether Loving One! Romans 5:6-8 “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.”
“We Found Love,” or rather Love found us, while we were still Love’s enemies. No person has ever or will ever again show the fullness of love as did Jesus Christ. He took my place, your place; standing under the pouring out of the righteous wrath of a Holy God. Taking our sins in His body on the cross; granting to us freedom from sin, death, and hell! Praise God that LOVE found a way to redeem men’s souls and do it through the person and work of Jesus Christ the Righteous One!
If you have never ‘found love,’ real and genuine Love, then seek Him today! You will find HIM to be Love worth finding. Read Romans 10:8-10, 13 for this truth.
For those who have found this Love, don’t keep it to yourself, share the Love of Christ with everyone with whom you come into contact.
