Romans 5:6

 

When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 

 

As most of you reading this are aware, we are in the liturgical church season of Lent.  This 40 day period preceding Easter is traditionally a time of reflection of our Christian life.  During this season, we often make adjustments in our Christian walk and evaluate all we have done for God before we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter.  Today, Paul wants to share with us a verse of Scripture that is short and sweet.  Don't miss the message as it will change your life.  At the time when we are and were the most helpless and hopeless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us.  We all know that.  We are all to some degree grateful for this loving gift of mercy.  That is not what I want you to consider today.  I want you to realize that Christ died just for YOU!  I don't want you to consider anyone else.  I want you to realize that you are and were someone worth dying for.  If you are looking for "self-worth" in the world, stop looking.  There isn't any.  People compare, are envious, jealous, cruel, evil, and "do all manner of evil against you falsely in the name of Jesus."  That will never change until Jesus comes back on a cloud to take us home.  Your self-worth comes from God.  You were important enough for God to send His only Son to die for YOU!  God called you by name.  God singled you out as worthy.  When you wake up tomorrow, don't let the world convince you that you are worthless.  God doesn't think so and He is all that counts.  You have fallen short of the glory of God, but You are worthy.  Don't forget!
