Romans 5:6-9

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.

But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

What does it mean to lay down our life for another? Would we have what it takes should the need ever arise? That is a very difficult question to answer since most of us will never be put to the test.

It might be easier to answer if we were called to die for someone we loved dearly, but what about dying for an evil, wretched, sinful person that hated and rejected us?

Jesus lead the way when he died for us all "when we were yet sinners." (See Bible verse above.) Praise God for His perfect example!

God Bless You!

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. What was Lydia's occupation and where did she live?

A. Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshipped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul.

Acts 16:14


Purple was a very difficult color to attain, so Lydia probably made a good living selling purple cloth to wealthy people. Thyatira was one of the seven churches listed in Revelation.
