Scripture:
“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.” ~Romans 5:6-8

Observation:
God’s way is so often just the opposite of what seems natural to us. God gifts us with what we do not deserve out of His love.

Application:
God was patient and loving with me as a sinner. Therefore, I need not only to be thankful to Him for that, but I also need to patient and loving to others who are sinners. I need to follow God’s example.

Prayer:
Father, thank You that in Your incredible patience and love You did not choose to condemn sinners, but instead offer Jesus as a sacrifice in my place. May I never forget the incredible gift that is and may I always praise You for it. Grant me Your patience and love with others who are still not reconciled to You; let me reflect Your heart for them.
