Romans 5:8 Devotional

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans‬ ‭5:8

Romans 5:8 Devotional:

Jesus died for us way before we recognized who he is. While we were (and still are) sinning, Jesus forgave us by giving up his life for us. This is encouraging to me! I’m far from perfect, and it feels like I hardly get anything right. Despite that, Jesus still died for me and I’ve been made perfect in God’s eyes because of his sacrifice.

Romans 5:8 Devotional Application:

Verses like this are hard to find applications for because Christ already did it. There’s nothing we can do to earn his love, so our reasonable response to this is rest and worship. You can rest knowing that Jesus has already taken care of all you need. And you can worship knowing that God is in control.

Prayer:

Thank you for your sacrifice, Jesus. I mess up daily, but I have the courage to get back up again knowing your forgiveness covers all. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
