This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at www.jenniferhudsontaylor.net.

Word of Inspiration: Christ Died for the Ungodly

"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 demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:6-8)

So many of us don't even want to do favors for people who won't help themselves and who seem to keep throwing themselves into the same path of destruction. While it's true that we must be careful of the fine line between helping someone and enabling them to stay the same, what about mankind as a whole? God knew that we could not save ourselves and that being born into sin, we would continue throwing ourselves into the same path of destruction. This verse demonstrates the POWER of God's love for us. How many of us would sacrifice our lives for someone who seemed to be wasting theirs? Christ died for the ungodly--all of us.
