The Greatest Love Story
A lot of people do not want a hope because they’ve been disappointed before by hope. Unfortunately, that type of hope is in things that all fail. We should put our hope in Jesus Christ, the one and only thing that can not fail.
In verse 6 we see that God is saying to the saved that our sins are in the past. Christ found you, you didn’t find Him. We have no way to get to God and nor does a lost person want to. The flesh or lost doesn’t want God. When a person is lost they are without hope and strength. If one thinks they will I’ve the way they want to and once they are done they will find God, this is a lie from their current god, Satan.
No man knows Gods time. In Gods time He will ask one to be saved. One can open the door all day long but if God is not knocking and at your door, then you waste your time opening it. Likewise, one can’t depend on someone else’s experience, invitation, salvation.
Verse 7 we read that there is no one that would die for a bad persons life. Then there would be very few that would die for a good person.
Verse 8 we see the greatest love to ever be experienced. Christ died for all when they were all, ALL horribly bad, sinful people. We are all guilty and yet Christ loved and gave His life for us. In todays time we have people on death row. These people are all guilty and rightly deserve what is coming to them. Just as them, we are the same and yet a sinless man came and gave His life for us. Is that not some kind of love?
There is no other event as great as Christs crucifixion.

1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 6For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (KJV)
