From Theology to Life and Back Again - Part 2

Sun, May 20, 2018
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:6–8 (ESV) Suffering, pain, and anxiety are a pressure cooker. In those times, days, and years we feel the weight of life. At times it can be hard to do anything. These moments bring many questions. Why? Has God forgotten about me? Does He care? Don't I deserve something better? Can't life be easy? How do I know He even loves me? When we have these questions and read scriptures like Romans 5:3 we wonder if Paul lived in the real world, but he wants us to know he does. He knows a God who loves deeply. This week he gives us reassurance of that through two important avenues. Take a few minutes and read through Romans 5:6-11 to prepare your heart and mind to worship together.
