Jesus Paid It All

The following verses have been on my mind for the past couple of days:
"6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10For 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."  (Romans 5:6-10)

This great truth should let us know that it is not necessary to somehow get right before coming to God, and it should definitely be an encouragement to anyone.  Additionally, God further declares that our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment (see Isaiah 64:6).

We serve a magnificent God!
