Romans 5:7-8

"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."
Romans 5:7-8

This is a cool thing to think about this morning... that Christ died for the possibility of our deliverance.  He saw, and sees, the goodness in us even when we have rolled in the mud of sin, and when we can't even see the good in ourselves.  He didn't die for us after he had picked us up and washed us off and found us worthy... he died despite our unworthiness, on the off chance that we would take advantage of his gift and choose eternal life.  He loved us enough to die for the possibility, not the guarantee.  So, now that we have this priceless gift, let's wash off the mud, and choose eternal life.
