hope for our sinking ship
He tells us that even though Adam and Eve shipwrecked humanity, we can see the amazing thing that God did to make the results better than the fall. And he says that God does the same thing in each of our lives.
We have all blown it, haven't we? Messed up. Dropped the ball. Made decisions so bad, based on selfishness, that we find ourselves in a horrible situation, not able to find a way out. But God reaches into our sinful, sad little lives and saves us from our own bad choices.
While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
He began saving us long before we even knew to ask. He forgives us for the sins that we've committed. It's important that we learn to forgive ourselves. If we have trouble doing that, we can ask, and He will help us.
God, thank You for making something good out of my shipwreck.
