The Perfect Substitute

An excerpt from Daily Bread, The Final Goal...
Romans %:8 God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners...

Jesus Christ took our place to do somethjng we could never do - save ourselves. when He was nailed to the cross, Jesus was put where we should have been.
At some point, all of us by our words or actions have told God we don't want Him to be in charge of our lives. That is why the Bible calls us "ungodly." Jesus didn't deserve to die because he never sinned. And yet, "God showed His great Love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners."

Jesus is the perfect Substitute. All we need to do is to accept Him as our Savior. When we do, "we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us."
