“But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”
People often feel like they need to clean up their act or get better before they can get serious about God. But God doesn’t wait for us to clean up our act. In fact, we can’t clean up our act on our own.
The good news is that God is in the business of forgiving, cleansing, restoring and changing. In His love He sent Christ to die for us while we were in bad shape, while we were in the depths of all the stench and garbage of our sin. That’s how much God loves us! And it is a love that will never let us.
