The other day I mentioned that I would be reading Piper’s book “50 Reasons why Jesus Came to Die” between Easter and Pentecost. You can get the scoop here.
To Show the Wealth of God’s Love and Grace For Sinners
Today I am reminded of God’s amazing love and grace. Piper does a great job of illustrating the supreme value of Jesus versus sinful humanity. It is not as though we are worth the price that was paid for us to know God. We are not valuable as sinners who are living in rebellion to God. But God is a God of love and grace and chose to sacrifice the infinitely worthy for the most unworthy. That God would go to such great lengths to save us reveals his love and grace for us.
Father, Thank you for pouring out your love and grace on us through Jesus Christ! You are worthy of all praise, honor and glory.
