But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For two thousand years many people have been speculating about the death of Christ. Some blame the Romans and others blame the Jews. And while mankind maintains a discussion about guilt in the death of the most important person in the story, the truth is that if we are to blame somebody, every man and every woman should look in a mirror to identify one of the millions of responsible for Christ’s death.
In Romans 5: 8 Paul says that Christ died for us because we are sinners. I know there are people who are not referred to by that because they think that sinners are living across the street. I regret to tell those people it is written in Romans 3:23: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. So there is no one who can say that is not a sinner. In that case, if it is true that some sinners live on the other side of the street, but in my house and yours as many more live.
He says 1 Corinthians 15:3: For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. This is a confirmation of what is written in Romans 5:8, Christ died for our sins and our mean mine and yours. So again I say that each of us is responsible for the death of Christ, were not only the Romans who executed Him and the Jews that prompted His death, but the entire human race.
And his death was not because we are “good people.” Look at Romans 5:6: For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. An ungodly is someone whose relationship with God is void, a sort of atheist who neither believes nor respects the true God. And if Christ died for us, that we are sinners, do not think that the term “ungodly” not for us also. The full humanity rebelled against God and was given to sin.
Fortunately, Christ did not stay dead. Romans 8:34 says: Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven where He intercedes with the Father for all who trust in Him.
It is quite clear that Jesus Christ died for every human being that has ever existed on Earth. All without exception we have been sinful and wicked and His death was in atonement for the sins of each of us. Therefore, our works cannot save us because no one is able to comply fully with the law of God. In Galatians 2:21 says: I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.
Only the grace of God through Christ’s death on our behalf gives us the opportunity to be saved and have eternal life. If Christ gave His life for you, is it too much to ask you to give your heart to Him? Today accepted Jesus Christ, believed in Him and obtain the salvation of your soul. God bless you.
