I Loved You At Your Darkest Devotional Bible Study, Romans 5:8.

Welcome to Day 2. for one of our short powerful devotions from the 30 Bible Verses About God's Amazing Grace, bible reading plan. This short devotional is about how God already loved you at your darkest times. We will discuss God's powerful love for you even before you were born. God loves you!

Join me in reading Romans 5:8.

"but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

This short verse from Paul’s letter to the Romans gives us insight into the love that God has for you and me. This verse only contains 18 words but it is one of the most beautiful, powerful bible verses about God's love for us that you will find in the Bible!


Due to the fall of Adam and Eve, we are all born with a sinful nature. That is a fact but did you know that God already loved you?

You were created to have fellowship with God. Everybody is created with a "God-shaped hole" in their heart, that only God can fill. Nothing can fill it except God. That is why we need to build and cherish a relationship with God. It is the only way to find true peace and joy. God loved us first when we were still unlovable. He loved us first before we even understood that we have to make a choice to love Him.


Short Devotional:

Before we were lovable, God loved us. God knew that it is impossible for us to atone for the sinful nature that we were born with.

But He created us to have fellowship with Him. So God provided a way to bridge that gap. It doesn't matter how many good things that we do, how many hours that we pray, we can never bridge that gap on our own. It is a matter of holiness. God is Holy. We can only come into His presence when we wear a robe of righteousness. You cannot buy this robe yourself but you can accept it as a gift. Jesus is your robe of righteousness.


How can we do anything but love Him back?

Jesus poured out His life for the forgiveness of our sins so we could be reconciled with God. Each of us, through faith, can have the opportunity to enter into a relationship with Jesus and experience peace with Him. He fills us with His hope, and joy in every situation that we encounter.

Having a relationship with Jesus doesn’t mean life is always easy. Rather, it provides us with the ability to face anything that comes our way. We can have hope in all our difficult situations.


God will pour out His grace upon you but you need to stay plugged into Him so that you can encounter His grace. That is why we are having these 30 days of short powerful devotions on God's grace. Read them each day and spend a few minutes in your prayer journal or notebook, prayerfully reading our daily bible verses about walking in God's grace and considering the prayer and gratitude prompts.


You will find a free printable PDF of 30 scriptures about God's grace in the Resource Library. It has the bible reading plan, guided prayer, and gratitude journal. Download this free printable or grab a notebook.


Today, consider the following questions prayerfully:

Have you ever asked Jesus into your life? If so, take some time to thank God for His grace.

How can you show grace to someone today?

What is God saying to you through these verses?

What burdens do you need to surrender to God and trust Him with?

Write out your prayer request.

What are you grateful for today? Count your blessings!

Write out the scripture verse, it helps you to memorize the scripture and store up God's truth in your heart.

Then in the last section of the prayer journal, there is space to record what God is speaking to you through our grace bible verses for today, Romans 5:8.


Scripture Prayer

We are called to pray without ceasing. That means we can talk with God at any time and in any place. You can chat with God throughout the day! Praying scripture is a powerful way to pray so join me in praying Romans 5:8.


Thank you Father for loving me so much that you sent Jesus to die for me, to be my Saviour and Lord. Thank you for your grace in my life. Fill me with a yearning to spend more time with you and to truly comprehend what it means to be loved by you as your child, that you loved me at my darkest before I put on my robe of righteousness that Jesus provided for me. Amen.
