Rom 5:7-8 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
I was there at the time three different wrecks took place.
I never hesitated to stop and render aid.
Not once did I think of the danger I might place myself in.
I didn’t think of the vehicle catching fire.
I did not think about another vehicle speeding along through the accident site.
At one time I actually climbed on top of a vehicle on its side to get the occupant out. Not once did I think of the possibility of the vehicle toppling on over with me on it.
My only concern with all the accidents was the safety of the occupants.
It did not matter if the occupant was a murderer, drug addict, child molester, Baptist, Muslim, or atheist.
I did not ask. I jumped into action.
In emergencies, most of us will jump into action without thought of personal safety.
God jumped into action in a worldwide emergency.
Jesus put Himself in harm’s way for us.
We are a wreck and He came to save us.
He already knows we are murderers, drug addicts, child molesters, religious, non-religious, and a number of other things. Basically, He knows we are sinners – but He came to our aid anyway.
“that saved a wretch like me”
