Hello and Praise the Lord!
Welcome my friends to another Memory Verse for the Week. Glad you could join us!

Father God
We come before You giving You all Glory, Honor and Praise. We thank You for another opportunity to share in Your Word. Please bless me with Your wisdom as I share Your word with my brothers and sisters in Christ.
I thank You in Jesus Name
Amen

This week's verse comes to us from Romans 5:6
"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly."

"When we were without strength". What a powerful and true statement. What were we before we had Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Romans 5:8 tells us "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
We were dirty. filthy sinners. Dirty rags, open graves, destined to an eternal life of torment in hell! Oh yes, that is true of everyone of us. No matter what we did in life to show ourselves approved, it was no good. Nothing we could have done would have saved us. We had no power, we had no strength to save our selves.

But in due time, Christ died for us, the ungodly. And we didn't even have a say in what time we would be saved, because in the due time was God's time, according to His Plan for our salvation. God looked down on His dirty ragged children and said it is time to save them from themselves. So He sent the only true and worthy sacrifice to cleanse the world of all of it sins! Jesus Christ came to die for the "ungodly". Not for the good people because there were none. Not for just me or you or our church or our own people. He came to die for us all that we may live forever in Heaven with Him. And not spend the rest of time in everlasting torment!

Now sit back and let that soak in for a minute. In this week alone, we have we done to deserve God's wrath? By our very thoughts alone, we should be condemned to hell. But because of the Blessed Blood of our Savior, we are free from the bondage of sin and death! Hallelujah, Thank You Jesus! Our sins past, present and future are forgiven us! Now, we have Power through the Name of Jesus. We have strength through the Holy Spirit who Christ sent to us and who now dwells in us. We are no longer weak but strong in Christ! Thank You Father God for saving us through Your Son, Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit Lead me to this verse because someone needs to hear this. Whoever you are who is this, know that you are no longer without strength. You are no longer alone in this journey. God has looked upon you and has deemed you worthy! If you are reading this and you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are saved and you know you are mighty and strong bu the blood of the Lamb. But if you don't know Him, then this is a call to you! You don't have to be alone. You don't have to be scared. And you don't have to live in your sins any longer. Jesus says He knocks at the door. And He is waiting for you to invite him in. Let Jesus be the Lord of your life. He died for you and for me and He wants no one to be lost. Come and let Him be your strength.
Thank you
In Jesus Name
Amen

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

May God richly bless you!

In Jesus Name
Amen
