Joy Inexpressible

Last night during a Bible study on Romans, the minister recalled a dark period of his life when he was living in rebellion against God. He asked his wife if God could forgive his sins, even in his low estate. She said that if Christ knew his sins when He died on the Cross, but still died for him, then He could and would forgive his sins now. He loved him then. He loved him still.

The minister went on: Christ knew we would continue sinning after we were saved, but He still died for us.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

I wonder when it will settle in my heart: I was and am the sinner that Christ died for; died for in full knowledge of who I am.

I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

I sin.
He dies.
I am delivered from wrath.
