Carrying on in Romans 5. Verses 6-8
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

On the human side we have: “yet without strength and “yet sinners”. On Gods side we have: “Christ dying for the ungodly” (something for you churchy folks to remember) and “God commending His love toward us”.

Humans: 0
God: 2

Who is really serving whom here?

Bless you readers. This is part one of a verse by verse on Romans 5. “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” For years now, whenever group thank cards, birthday or anniversary cards are passed around I sign simply this, “Romans 5.1”. It is a very fulfilling […]
