But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
A statue of Christ stands tall in a cemetery not far from our house.
With arms open, the statue suggests that Jesus is ready and willing to forgive us and draw us close.
Everyone who died and was buried there needed Jesus.
They needed salvation.
They needed to be redeemed.
Jesus did that for them, and they only had to make the decision to receive Him as their Savior.
Jesus did that for them.
He did it for us, too.
