He Saw Our Need
In our communities, some wonderful men and women put their life on the line every day as they serve on the police force, EMT, and fire department rescuing and helping people in need. Often, they would lose their life to save a life. Although there are some good men and women who would put their life on the line to save a life, when you look in the Bible, you see that Jesus saw our need even before we were born, and He willingly gave His life so that we could have eternal life. Jesus Christ saw a need that no one could fill except Him. His love for us is far greater than anything, and its because of His love for us that He sacrificed His life for us. Today, as you begin your week, reflect on God's love for you. We need His strength, peace, joy, love, and His presence as we go through this life. Every day we should give back to God for what He has done for us, although we can never truly repay Him. All He wants from us is a tender willing heart to serve and tell others about the need that only He can fill in their lives.
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 (KJV)
