Much More…

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

Romans 5:6-9

After telling us just how much He loves us in verses 6-9, God tells us just how secure our salvation in Jesus Christ really is.

In verses 6-9, we saw that Jesus died for us even when were yet sinners.  Jesus gave Himself for us even when we hated Him and were His enemies.  That blood that He shed on Calvary justifies us.  It allows us to be forgiven of our sins and to now have a right relationship with God.  Verse one of this chapter tells us “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”  We are no longer the enemies of God.  We even are at peace with God.

If God loved us so much and was willing to sacrifice so very much for us when we were still at enmity with Him, imagine how much He loves us and how much He is willing to help us now what we are no longer at enmity with Him.  He loved us when we were sinners and were His enemies.  Now, we are no longer His enemies.  We are His children!

If God loves guilty, wicked, vile, hateful sinners enough to die on the cross and give His life for them, imagine how much He is going to love His own children!  It is a wonderful truth and helps to show us just how secure we are in Him.
