Today's Sermon Wrap-Up

Today we tackled the subject of "Extreme Love" and our text was Romans 5:6-8:

Romans 5:6-8 "For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

I'm not sure we can fully comprehend what it means to live a Christian life until we first undertsand how much God loved us. God didn't ask us to clean up our act first. He loved us even when we were in deep sin.

This is what set Christianity apart from all other world religions. All other religions are the struggle of man to reach God. Christianity is the story of God reaching to man. And that is what extreme love is all about.
