He Died for Us

hands reaching for cross

As we stand at the cross of Christ we see a glorious exhibition of God’s love. Paul wrote to the Christians in Rome, “While we were powerless to help ourselves . . . Christ died for sinful men.” In human experience, it is a rare thing for one man to give his life for another, even if the latter be a good man, though there have been a few who have had the courage to do it. Yet the proof of God’s amazing love is this: that it was “while we were sinners Christ died for us.”

A beautiful young society leader came to visit my wife and me. She had been converted to Christ in one of our Crusades, and she was absolutely radiant in her transformation. Already she had learned scores of Scripture verses by heart and was so full of Christ that we sat for two hours listening to her give her moving testimony. Over and over she said, “I cannot understand how God could forgive me. I have been such a wicked sinner. I just cannot understand the love of God.”

    Our human mind cannot fathom the incredible depths of God’s Love. We know that he gave his Holy Son’s spotless life in a horrific way to pay our sin debt in full. That opened the door for all those who would accept that great truth an opportunity to join the family of God. Now that’s amazing Love.

  9. Joyce Paul says:

    Lord Jesus Christ, through Your Grace and Power dwell in us, help us to forgive, that Your Love will set us free. Praise The Lord! Amen.
