“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.” Romans 5:8.
Have you ever wondered if you are good enough for God to love you? Unfortunately, many people believe God loves them only as long as they don’t make mistakes.
Perhaps it was this outlook that caused the psalmist to ask, What is man that You are mindful of him?… (Psalm 8:4). Yet, the Bible tells us that we are God’s creation—the work of His hands—and that He loves each one of us unconditionally.
Let’s face it: Jesus didn’t die for you because you were great and wonderful; He died for you because He loves you. Romans 5:8-9 confirms this truth by telling us that He died for us while we were still sinners.
God loved you enough to give His only begotten Son, not only to die for your sins, but also to cover your daily mistakes. He loves you so much, He wants you to live each day in power and victory.
God loves you, and He wants you to believe it and receive it all the time…even when you make mistakes…repent and forsake the sins…and be free.
We do not need to strive for power or hope to have power someday; we have power now because we are now right with God! The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us (see Rom. 8:11) and we can be quickened (filled with life) by that power. This is not a onetime filling that slowly drains out of us as the days go by, but we can be filled day by day and even moment by moment. We can constantly and continually experience God’s presence and power in our lives. When we belong to Him, there is never a time when His power is not accessible to us.
