Perfect Plan of Love

Reflecting on the perfection of God's revelation of His salvation plan.   For hundreds of years God revealed Himself to the people through the Old Testament, all so we would completely understand the importance of Christ and what He did on the cross.  We see the cross in the old sacrificial system, we see grace and mercy right from the time of Abraham, we understand the effect of sin from the Exile and through it all we see the amazing, undeserved and overflowing love of God.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!  For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!  Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
~Romans 5:6-11
Even when it was us that screwed it all up, Jesus made it right. That is God's perfect plan of love!
