“God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
Isn’t it good to know that Jesus loves ALL people, including the substandard whom society casts aside as worthless.
One great example that often comes to mind, (Luke 7: 36-39)the woman who had lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at a Pharisee’s home.
This woman cast aside any fear of ridicule and shame, went there and knelt at Jesus’ feet weeping.
The Pharisee labeled her a sinner, but Jesus received and accepted her. He spoke gently to her, assuring her that her sins had been forgiven.
Jesus loves flawed, imperfect people like us. And the greatest demonstration of His love for us is that “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
As recipients of His love, may we also extend that same love to other flawed people that we encounter along the way, so that they too may know that they can receive God’s love despite their imperfections.
