Romans 5:8 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

Throughout my life, I have struggled with my self-worth and who I thought I was supposed to be. This verse speaks volumes to me about how much God loves us and how much we mean to Him! Our worth can’t be defined by earthly things because we are not citizens of this earth but citizens of Heaven! Bought and paid for by the precious Blood of the Lamb!

 

I was an enemy both of the Cross and myself until Jesus broke the chains, opened my eyes, and gave me a new heart filled with Him! And He did it not because of who I am, but who He is and how much He loves us. The Father wanted us to be reconciled to Him so much that He sent His only begotten Son to pay for our sins and to bring us salvation! I don’t know about you, but that statement takes me from worthless to priceless!

 

I like to say you can tell the value of something by the price someone is willing to pay for it, and Jesus paid the highest price known to man for us! So, to me, that means we are pretty valuable in His eyes! Jesus drank our cup of wrath so that we may drink His cup of mercy, grace, and forgiveness!!! So, next time this world or the enemy has you down or doubting who you are in Christ, remember Jesus said you are worth it, and He proved it on the Cross!!!

 

Papa, give us eyes to see ourselves the way You do and let us walk in humble confidence as sons and daughters of God Most High. Let our hearts be filled with your love, and our mouths be filled with your praises! In Jesus' name, Amen!

 

I love you all! God bless! Glory, Honor, and Praise to Papa God, King Jesus, and our Comforter the Holy Spirit!
