Christ Died for the Ungodly

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.

Romans 5:6-8

 Christ didn’t die for me while I was at my best. He didn’t die for me when I thought I had something to offer. Christ died for me when I was at my worst, at a time when I was so far gone that I could no longer recognize who it was looking back at in the mirror. Never were grace and love better spoken than in the words “Christ died for the ungodly.”
