Today is another milestone day and the reading for today was, in a sense, another milestone passage:
When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.
That’s one of those passage that contains so much punch that you could spend the whole year just understanding its meaning.
The power of reading through the Bible in a year is that you get to understand the flow of the Bible and how different pieces fit together. It’s also worth dwelling on a particular passage and feeding on it.
