Romans 5:7–10 (Listen)
7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
Hymn: TLH 363, st. 1,3: To our Redeemer’s Glorious Name
1. To our Redeemer’s glorious name
Awake the sacred song.
Oh, may His love, immortal flame,
Tune every heart and tongue.
3. He left His radiant throne on high,
Left realms of heavenly bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die,–
Was ever love like this?
