Without Strength

For when we were without strength, at the right time,
Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die
for a righteous person--though perhaps for a good per-
son one would dare to die--BUT GOD shows His love
for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died
for us

Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his
blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the
wrath of God.

For 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 my His life.
Romans 5:6-10

Grace is not looking for good men whom it may ap-
prove, for it is not grace but mere justice to approve
goodness. But it is looking for condemned, guilty,
speechless and helpless men whom it may save, sanc-
tify and glorify. C I Scofield--1843-1921
Scofield was a lawyer and Confederate army officer
before his conversion.

I found several biographies and discovered that just
like John Newton, it took him awhile to actually live
as one who is saved. He discovered in himself total
helplessness to live the Christian life. However, God
took this fleshly lump of clay and worked in Him some-
thing that staggers. He is the CI Scofield that put
together the Scofield Bible that is still cherished today.

Reader, the verses above are beyond comprehending,
but try...
