We were God’s enemies!

By Don Ruhl

We may not have realized it and we may not have intended it, but when we became sinners and did ungodly things, we made ourselves the enemies of God! Nevertheless, think on what He did,

For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life (Romans 5.10). 

God worked through Jesus to reconcile us to Himself! And that includes the people who did realize that they were enemies of God and had every intention of being His enemy. He still loved them and drew them to Himself through the death and resurrected life of His wonderful Son.

Questions:

  • Do you remember your sins and then remember how God in Christ forgave you?
  • How would you picture the love of God?
