God’s love

I was working on a post for 412teens on God’s love and came across this verse:

“But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

I remember the first time the full weight of that verse hit me. I was at school, I don’t remember which class, what year, I do have a clear visual memory of seeing it on the page. How mind blowing is this little statement? How fully and completely unearned is that love? I hope this fact never loses it’s amazingness to me. So much of culture tells us to earn love, to be a little more a little better….but God’s love isn’t dependent on you being more. You are enough. Each person comes to Christ as in need of a savior as the next.
