Why Easter Matters: Week 2 Tuesday

Read:    Romans 5:6-9

6 While we were yet in weakness [powerless to help ourselves], at the fitting time Christ died for (in behalf of) the ungodly.

7 Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a noble and lovable and generous benefactor someone might even dare to die.

8 But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.

9 Therefore, since we are now justified (acquitted, made righteous, and brought into right relationship with God) by Christ’s blood, how much more [certain is it that] we shall be saved by Him from the indignation and wrath of God.

SOAP:    Romans 5:7-8

7 Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a noble and lovable and generous benefactor someone might even dare to die.

8 But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.

S-    Write    out    the    scripture    passages    for    the    day.   

    Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a noble and lovable and generous benefactor someone might even dare to die. But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.   

O-    Write    down    1    or    2    observations    from    the    passage.   

    Even before we gave up our sins Christ was willing to die for us.  He is that loving.

   

A-    Write    down    1-2    applications    from    the    passage.   

    For me it’s the knowing that even before I accepted Him as my savior he had already given his life for me. No one else would be willing to do that. That is a powerful kind of love. One that we can not keep taking for granted.  

   

P-    Pray    over    what    you    learned    from    today’s    passage.

Dear Lord, help me to never take your love for granted. Let me to live every day with the realization that you love me that much. Help me to keep that at the forefront of my mind.  Thank you, Father. Amen.
