The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Romans 8:18-27 / Psalm 62

“God shows His loves for us in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

Grace Beyond Compare

As we comb through the Old and New Testaments, we find passage after passage telling us how much God loves us. Although different writers say it in a different way, the message is always the same: in spite of our sinfulness, in spite of our rebellious nature and un-kind disposition, God loves us so much that He paid the ultimate price for our redemption. In today’s verse, we find one of the clearest statements regarding the grace of God in Jesus Christ. St. Paul said it all in just seventeen words. God, out of love for you and me, gave His most precious possession – His only begotten Son – that we might be forgiven and reconciled to Him. He didn’t wait for us to try to deserve it. Christ took upon our sin so that we would not have to suffer the death that God’s justice demands. Jesus Christ gave up His life so that we could have our life to enjoy and to live with Him now and for all eternity.

Heavenly Father, I thank You for being gracious and merciful to me in Jesus, my Savior. Amen.
