Much More

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Romans 5:7-10

I don’t think this is anything else I could dare add.  I have been feeling like this about the bible for awhile now.  The word of God says all that needs to be said.  Yet we desire to add to the word or come up with some deep profound interpretation.  I hope we can learn to read what God said and leave it at that.  Do we see how much God loves His sheep?  When we were in our sin, Christ died for us giving us the greatest gift in the world.  When we do a good job at work or school, sometimes we don’t get recognized and we still give them our lives.  We respect people and bend over backwards for others who will never love you as much as God does and we don’t give Him the same respect.  And yes He deserves even more.
