Romans 5, Part 4

God Commendeth His Love

By Tammy Lacock

“But God Commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8, KJV)

God raised up the Apostle Paul to deliver the message of God’s love to all human beings. 

In Romans 5 verse 8, he explains that Christ’s death was an act of God’s unconditional love, a love that is not forced on us but a love He willingly gives and entrusts to us, even as sinners. A love He gives without the promise of reciprocation. 

When Christ died, He didn’t die for Himself. He drank the cup of all of our sins and died with those sins. Our old lives of sin died, too; and when He rose, we rose to a new life IN Him.

In Galatians 2:20, Paul says it plainly and clearly, 

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

By simply believing in Christ as our Savior, the one who died to give us new life, we become bona fide sons and daughters of God. He loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die for us … so that we too are now blameless before Him, perfect in His eyes.

That’s God’s Love.

About the Podcast

Loving the Christ-life!
Warren Litzman teaches life in Christ, the Christ-life, the gospel of grace taught by Apostle Paul..
Warren Litzman teaches the Christ-life, the liberating life available when the born-again believer realizes the Spirit of Christ living within is his/her only righteousness and only life. This gospel of grace taught by Paul frees us from sin and law, shifting our focus from self to Christ, relieving us from stressing over perfecting self by works and the guilt and condemnation that follows our inevitable failure at self-righteousness. It leads us into a much more personal, intimate relationship with our heavenly Father as born-again children of God, joint-heirs with Christ.
