May 24, 2020: SOAP #3824:   1Kings 9; 2Chronicles 8; Psalm 136; Romans 5

Scripture:  Romans 5: 7  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.
8  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Observation:    What an amazing thought.  Around the world, most worshippers make their sacrifices to please their god/s.  Our God makes the supreme sacrifice on behalf of the worshipper!   He does not require a sacrifice for Himself greater than the sacrifice he has already made for us!

And, Jesus did not wait to see if we would prove worthy of such a sacrifice, He made the sacrifice while we were still sinners. 

Application:  God does not require of me more than He has already willingly given for me!  After all He has done for me, I should never complain that He is asking too much of me. 

Prayer:   Lord, I am yours.  My life belongs to you!  What can I do for you today?  How can I bring joy to your heart today?  Amen.
