We Were Helpless When Christ Died For Us

Have you ever been helpless? Have you ever had a problem that you just couldn’t fix? And maybe, asking for help isn’t you roll. Maybe you have a deep independent streak that won’t let you ask for help. But, even thought you don’t want to, there have probably been times when you have asked for help.
Well, there is something that we are helpless in and we can’t solve the problem without help and that is, in the area of salvation. Paul said in Romans, “When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.” Think about that… when we were HELPLESS. We could not do one thing to help ourselves. There is no one we could call and solve the problem. We couldn’t get enough money to solve it. We were helpless.
Which is why Jesus sacrificial death is so remarkable. Paul says, “When we were utterly helpless…. Christ came.
Let’s say you have a loan at the bank and you have paid on it for years. It’s a large loan and you have at times wondered if you would ever pay it off. One day, you receive an envelope from the bank stating the loan has been paid in full. You were helpless, but someone paid the note.
That’s what Jesus did for us. When we were helpless, Christ died for us
