2011 Scripture Memory #15

Happy August! I can't believe the "summer" is almost over and that Daniel will be starting back to school next week. But since the calendar keeps on moving all year long, it's time for another memory verse!

The third verse in the "Six Points of the Gospel" from Crossings Camp is:

"But God demonstrated His love toward us, in this: 
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8

Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead.

This is such a basic truth, yet at the same time hard to comprehend. God loves us so much that even though we could never deserve it, he gave His only Son to die and to take the punishment for our sins on Himself. I encourage you to do some thinking on this and let this wonderful truth of the gospel sink deeper into your soul. Wow! That's love!
