He Died To Save His Enemies

Would you die for someone? I think I may be willing to do that in the line of saving an innocent person from an unjust death. Like a cop risking his life to protect and possibly save someone else. But would I die to save the person deserving of death for wrongs done against me? Probably not. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't.

Romans 5:6-11 tells us about a love for people that is and did go that far. God sent is Son Jesus to die a death to save all of us from eternal death we deserve for wronging Him. We sin against God every day. Even while we know of this salvation we sin against the giver of life. And it is only through the blood Christ shed for us that we are justified, and saved from the wrath of God. Verse 11 "...we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation."

Praise God for His Love.
