2/26/23 Romans 5:6-11 The Magnitude of God’s Love
After discussing the purpose and reality of suffering in the Christian life, Paul continues with encouragement and confidence for believers, as he illustrates the reality of God’s love for believers. He assures them with the reality that God’s love for us is so great that even though we were his enemies, He gave His only Son to die for us. This is true and unfailing love that allows us to know for sure that hope will not put us to shame, but will endure until the end and truly deliver us from the wrath to come. Let us then rejoice in our reconciliation, for it is the merciful and wonderful outpouring and display of God’s love for us.
