for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 5:6-8 TOL For while we were still helpless, at the right time Messiah died for the ungodly.

But God shows his love for us, because while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

God Has Set Things Right

Romans 003.21-23 Message Remix But in our time something new has been added. What Moses and the prophets witnessed to all those years has happened.

The God-setting-things-right that we read about has become Jesus-setting-things-right for us. And not only for us, but for everyone who believes in him. For there is no difference between us and them in this.

Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them) and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, God did it for us.

Romans 005.6-8 Message Remix Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t wait for us to get ready. he presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway.

We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire to selfless sacrifice.

But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatsoever to him.

Romans 006.22-23 Message Remix But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way!

Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.

Romans 010.9-11 Message Renix Say the welcoming word to God–“Jesus is my Master”–embracing, body and soul, God’s work of doing in us what he did in raising Jesus from the dead. That’s it.

You’re not “doing” anything, you’re simply calling out to God. trusting him to do it for you. That’s salvation. With your whole being you embrace God setting things right, and then you say it, right out loud: “God has set everything right between him and me!”

Scripture reassures us, “No one who trusts God like this–heart and soul–will ever regret it.”
