But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.Jesus died for the fallen away Catholic, the doubter, the Presbyterian, the infant, the atheist, the cheater, the lukewarm, and praise the Lord, for the 6-year-old who is still over a year away from the first moment he will get to hold the body of Christ in his tiny fingers. I wanted my son to know with every fiber of his being that Jesus DID in fact give up his body for HIM, but if I stop and examine my own convictions, I don’t think I feel the same urgency for others to know it. Sure, God gave me a special love for my children, but still. He wants me to have a special love for His children too. So here is a challenge I’m issuing myself and you: pray. Pray that God will help you encounter one person this week who thinks that Jesus died for someone else and not them. He will give you the words to say or the smile or hand to extend that will share the greatest truth they will ever know. Jesus is for them.
