“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
The word commendeth means to place together or introduce on person to another. When we were at our absolute worst God introduced us to His love.
The love of God is power. Its power to change your condition whatever it may be. Love is the power to change ashes to beauty, pain to joy, loneliness to comfort, sickness to health, poverty to riches and confusion to peace. Whatever your condition Love is the remedy.
Notice what God did when we were at our worst He introduced us to His love and what was once unrighteous was made righteous by love. Even in the beginning when God wanted to see change He used Love. The world was created by Love.
Do you know that you can do the same thing? You can change any adverse situation in your life by using love. Not your love but God’s love and God’s love is Jesus Christ. When you introduce your problems to Jesus they have to flee.
Now you might be saying “I’ve got some people I’d like to change.” Well, the love remedy works on all kinds of people. If you are a believer you can testify to that. One day you were ”…fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others” (Ephesians 2:3). Then one day you were introduced to love and were made alive together with Christ. Your condition changed you moved from death to life, from darkness to light. No matter how bad they may seem just introduce them to love, introduce them to Jesus because He is the power of God to salvation. “…Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8).
Jesus Christ is the remedy. It’s His beauty for your ashes, His joy for your pain, His comfort for your loneliness, His body for your sickness, His riches for your poverty, His peace for your confusion, His life for your life. Use Him and watch your condition change.
