Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (NIV)
Some days my so-called spirituality doesn’t measure up to what I and I suspect others think it should be.
Some days I just feel spiritually unconnected to God, don’t really waNt to worship, pray or study. And I am not real desirous of hearing people talk about the warm fuzzy feeling of faith.
And then I feel guilty that I feel that way. But then I remember that while my spiritual life is like a roller coaster, the life and love of Christ is so consistent and constant. Then I recall that while we were, and I might add, ARE, sinners, Christ died for us. His sacrifice is a present reality. That is the wonderful news of Grace. It is all Christ’s doing not ours and some days we do well to understand that we contribute nothing to that grace. Bad hair days teach me that, and so I will rejoice, as Paul on wrote, even in my weakness.
