Think of every horrible thing you have ever done.  Every thought of malice, lust and greed.  Think of the many ways you have broken God’s law, both before salvation as well as after salvation.  We all seem to have a bottomless well from which to draw sin and iniquity.  It is in light of this fact that I look at these two Scriptures in total amazement.  “Wow” seems to be the only fitting commentary.

God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:8 (ESV)

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.   Romans 3:21-22 (ESV)

Perhaps more commentary would be appropriate.  The absolute wonder of these passages, the fact God in the flesh died for those completely unworthy and wrapped in iniquity, and bestowed upon us His righteousness….the righteousness of God!!  It is simply overwhelming and amazing.  No.  Any more commentary I might lend will only take away from the wonder of it all.  WOW!!
