Romans 5:10 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Romans 5:10

For if, while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!


A nugget of hope this morning! The last couple of days, this verse has been bouncing around in my head and my Spirit, and then yesterday in church, the Holy Spirit just hit me with truth, and let me tell you, it was beautiful! It went something like this: Christ didn’t die for His friends. He died for His enemies so they might become friends and children of God!


There is so much power and hope in that statement that it gave me goosebumps when I told my wife! Every person who has ever lived has, at one point, been an enemy of God because of sin in their lives. Not one of us was born righteous except for Jesus Christ, and that is why it’s only through faith in Him that we can be saved! The righteous for the unrighteous, the Son of God for the sons of sin, the perfect One for the tainted ones, and all because He loves us and wants us to spend eternity in His Presence!

Jesus Christ’s surrender and sacrifice didn’t buy His freedom but ours! He is God in the flesh and didn’t need saving, but we did!


The last couple of days have been a little heavier than most, and this morning in prayer, I felt the Holy Spirit come upon me and fill me with hope! I felt like He was saying this morning that it’s gonna be okay because I am in Him, and He is in me! I feel like He wants me to end with that thought, that this morning He is saying to you, “It’s gonna be okay. Lean into me as I lift you up and fill you with my Hope!”


Romans 15:13 - May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.


 God bless! I love you all! All Glory, Honor, and Praise till the end of time and then some to our God, His Son, and His Holy Spirit!
