Christ In Our Place

I think this IS the perfect name for this passage not only because the NKJV used it in the Bible but because of the act of love 💕 that was truly done to save an entire world and multitude of people out of love so I also am going to call this writing I am doing for you as a Child of God to learn from.

Romans 5:6-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

Christ in Our Place

6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Another translation explains it this way

Romans 5:6-8 New Living Translation (NLT)

6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Just something to ponder over that though we are still sinners God has protected us from the wrongs we have done by sending his son to die for the ungodly on the cross when we were powerless. I ask you to ponder this for a moment, would you honestly die on a cross for someone most answer that they wouldn’t. Though Jesus had no option to choose not to as God had spoken with him over the circumstances and told him that he had to die to save all is as sinners. Out of his faithful love towards us as his children God sent his son to die for us while we were still sinners.

God loves us so much that he sacrificed his very own son for all his children in the world.

In this Christ had to die in the cross though to save us from our own sin, although he promised to rise again. Dieing out of unfailing love for one is a strong sacrifice however Christ died for all of us that’s an even larger and the ultimate sacrifice that only God knew he could do. In his death Christ paid for our sin. For this I am very grateful as I know I may say to another I love you so much I’d die for you though I question if I would really be able to bring actions upon that statement. God knew his son would because of the faithful loving relationship that he and his father had together. Most likely if that would ever actually happen where I was in the actual situation of contemplating if I would faithfully out of love truly go through death for another. Although I do not know the answer most likely I wouldn’t be able to successfully go through with the actions as much as we speak it in our hearts saying the statement that I’d die to save you or I’d die for you if I had to. If I ever came to that actual situation I don’t know if I could go through that, however God knew that his son was that Jesus would be obedient out of faithfulness and love to his father. In this saving us all as sinners. Would you be able to make that ultimate sacrifice for now or even a multitude of people out of love to save them? Most would answer this question no which is expected and only God new that which is why he chose his Son and sacrificed something so precious to him for the love of his other children. Only his sacrifice could cleanse us making us pure and whole. That is the kind of live Jesus had in him and in his father and for us. That is the kind of loving father God is. That would be the hardest thing anyone but Jesus could ever do and go through with.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true. —Soren Kierkegaard. "...truth is true even if nobody believes it, and falsehood is false even if everybody believes it. That is why truth does not yield to opinion, fashion, numbers, office, or sincerity--it is simply true and that is the end of it" - Os Guinness, Time for Truth, pg.39. “He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
