7 For one
will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one
would dare even to die — ESV
Paul begins the comparison of Gods love and commitment, to mans love and commitment. And obviously Gods is far more reaching and far better than that of humanity.
There are examples in history of people laying down their lives for others, but those examples are rare and the vast majority of people do not know of any of those examples.
However, even among humanity a person might, repeat might, lay their life down for another if they are a very close friend or family or a good person or even a righteous person. But there have to be very unusual circumstances in order for that kind of personal sacrifice, to occur.
Even though the personal sacrifice is possible, most folks would not end their own life for another. Too many excuses or logic or reasoning simply get in the way to prevent it.
And, when you consider a sacrifice of this kind, in behalf of a tyrant or bad person or an extremely horrible person, well, is there anyone who would even begin to consider giving themselves up so that that horrible person can continue in their life?
If you hesitate to give your life for someone who is overwhelmingly good, then there is no chance that you would even begin to think about ending your life for someone who has fallen way off the deep end of corruption.
And yet, God, who is Jesus Christ, gave His life for everyone, without even the slightest hesitation.
Christ did the maximum, and even beyond the maximum for our benefit. And yet most folks will not even lift a tiny finger to go to a link to read a daily study and grow up in their spiritual life, to better themselves, as God has intended for them, much less do this day after day after day throughout their life.
Why is that?
These studies, are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, that is easily accessible, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.
To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
