While reading in a book by Max Lucado, I came across a question that really caused me to stop and think. The question was this: How would it affect your life today if God had said, "I'll die for you when you deserve it"? I stopped and read the question again. What would my life be like if God had said such a thing? The first word that popped into my mind was "hopeless."
Without the sacrifice that God made for me, I don't think life would even be worth living. For the next several moments, all I could do was praise God for His grace and His great sacrifice. If Jesus wouldn't die for me until I deserved it, He would never have had to die. But I'm so thankful He did. Life without Him is just not life at all! Thank God for His amazing grace!
