Help at the Right Time

Romans 5:6 "At just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly."

When a fireman rescues an aged man from the ledge of his old burning hotel; when a lifeguard pulls a drowning youth from the swimming pool and gives mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, restoring breath to the unconscious lad; or when a lumberjack pushes a man out of the way of a falling log, we join in thoughts of thanksgiving for the rescued ones. We hope someone will be around to help us in similar situations. 

Jesus, Our Redeemer

Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles … For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength. 1 Corinthians 1:22-23, 25

The world falsely accuses Christians of making up stories about Jesus in order to make an ordinary man seem divine. Perhaps they recognize that their religions are all made-up stories and/or they cannot imagine … or simply accept … that the biblical account is true.
