Stampin' Sisters In Christ challenges celebrates!

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. 
        Romans 5:6-8

Our Birthday Blog Hop starts at the Stampin' Sisters In Christ blog! You'll want to start there and follow along. There are many blessings along the way and chances to win prizes, so we hope you'll join us! All of the blog links will also be there in case you need them.

Now you know a couple of my favorite verses. Romans 5:6-8 astounds me.  God made a way for all people to know Him and have a relationship with Him even though we don't deserve it.  We're not righteous people, not even good people.  We all know it's true deep down in our hearts. There's no power in ourselves to make us worthy of God's love.  But God didn't care about that. His love was higher, deeper, wider, & longer than all our sins. We mean more to Him than all our sins. He proved it when Christ died a death He didn't deserve in order to make a way for us to have that relationship with God, which we don't deserve.   He did the work that gives us the gift of eternal life. Amazing!

I'm thankful you were able to join us for the celebration of a year's worth of Stampin' Sisters In Christ challenges.  You'll want to go HERE to Linda's post as you continue on your way.  May God bless you today.  Hugs, Laurie
