This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Romans 5:8. This verse declares that God demonstrated His love for us in Christ dying for us while we were still sinners.
Very rarely for even a righteous person will someone dare to die (Romans 5:7), yet Christ died for us while we were still sinners. Though there is not one of us that is righteous in and of ourselves (Romans 3:10), Jesus gave His life for us, that we might be saved. How great is the love that would do this! How overwhelming to know that we are cared for in such a way by the King of Kings!
God gave us the best He had to offer. He didn’t spare His own Son, but gave Him up for all of us (Romans 8:32). He proved beyond a shadow of a doubt just how greatly He loves us. It is our privilege to enter into relationship with Him – to be His children, and to be able to call Him our Heavenly Father.
Know that you are loved by the Most High! He loves you so much that while you were still a sinner, He sent His Son to give His life for you, to redeem you. He has bestowed lavish love upon you, in calling you His son or daughter (1 John 3:1). Rest in the assurance of His amazing affection!
