January 20 – Romans 5:8 says; “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”.
We see from this scripture that while we are still living in our fleshy ways, He has saved us. We did nothing to merit this grace. There is nothing we could have done to have such a blessing bestowed upon us. He certainly didn’t wait for us to cleanse ourselves from our sins. If that were the case, He’d still be waiting on us.
Pay attention to the wording in the Mormon verse Alma 11:37; “And I say unto you again that he cannot save them in their sins…”
