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.

God loved us while we were still stewing in our own sin. There are few analogies or metaphors that can really capture all that God’s grace in sending His Son to save us means. There is no greater love and we will never experience a more merciful act. If we confess our sins and accept Christ’s sacrifice, we are washed clean, blameless, and free. More importantly, we can be reconciled or made right with God. God longs to reconcile with His children. Reconciliation is the theme of the Bible and it is also the hope that we have as we wait for Jesus’ final return.
