Third Sunday of Lent

March 4

Christ Died for Us

Romans 5:1-2,5-8

Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.


Prayer Thought

Lord, who can imagine the love that you bestow upon us.


Forgiveness is most Christlike when it is given to the undeserving.”
