For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Without Christ, we would surely die. That is the wage we earned by our sin (Romans 6:23). Instead, Christ died for us, the ungodly. It is difficult enough to imagine dying for a good person, but despite our evil nature, Jesus was willing to take our inadequacies onto His own shoulders and die for us, washing our sins clean. With this gift, it is our responsibility not to squander it. We are not, and will not ever, be worthy of the gift, but we should still work hard to be more like Christ, to accept His gift graciously, and to share it with others.
