There is so much in this passage, but I want to focus on the phrase "Christ died for us." Jesus didn't die merely for our benefit, but in our place. Jesus took our very place on the cross, paying the penalty, the price (Rom. 6:23) for our sins. In the New Testament, Christ is described as having died in place of the Christian (v8), in place of the church (Eph. 5:25), and in place of the world (Heb. 2:9). We owe him our love, obedience, worship and service for what He did for us. Christ died for us. Let us live for Him. Jesus saves!
