Christ Died for the Ungodly

Rom. 5:6-9 For when we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet per-adventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended his love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ...

“National Day Of Prayer?”
