Would you give your life to save a drug lord?

Jesus didn’t stumble in front of the divine bullet meant for you. He stepped in front of it. — John Piper


Pastor Pastor Alan Rosnau is the Pastor of the Shepard of the Desert Lutheran Church in Scottsdale, AZ.  This summer he is preaching a series of sermons on some of the great truths and texts found in the book of Romans.

Yesterday’s text was Romans 5:6-9:

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 person, though for a good person 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!

In his July 9 excellent 17-minute sermon, Pastor Rosnau delivered a terrific talk, clearly and simply explaining the famous Romans text. (An added benefit is that Rosnau is so well spoken.)

It’s really worth a listen if you can spend a few minutes hearing the good pastor explain why Jesus died for you and me while we were yet sinners.
