designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will
die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a
to live with honor before God and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause,
to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that
will echo in eternity.

Read: Romans 5:1-11 | Bible in a Year:
Deuteronomy 1-2; Mark 10:1-31
One of the most popular tourist attractions in England is the giant
stone pillars of Stonehenge. These massive pieces of granite are
also a great source of mystery. Every year, people travel to
Stonehenge with questions such as: Why were they erected? Who
accomplished this extraordinary engineering marvel? And perhaps we
wonder most of all how they did it. But visitors leave having
received no answers from the silent stones. The mystery remains.
The Scriptures speak of a greater mystery—the fact that God came to
live among us as a man. Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 3:16, “Great is the
mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in
the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on
in the world, received up in glory.”
This brief overview of the life of Christ—the mystery of
godliness—is remarkable. What prompted the Creator of the universe
to come and live and die for His creation, however, is not a
mystery. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while
we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). God’s great
love for us is at the root of the mystery of godliness, and the
cross has made it plain for all to see.
Lord, we may not understand everything You have done for us, or
how You have done it. But we know You love us and sent Jesus to die
for us, and that is all we need to know.
How Christ became a human being may be a mystery, but God’s
INSIGHT: An inclusio is a writing device where an idea or word is
repeated at the beginning and end of a passage, but the idea in the
middle is the author’s primary focus. In today’s passage, an
inclusio is formed with the word “rejoice” (vv. 2,11). The emphasis
is directly in the middle of the passage in verse 6: “Christ died
for the ungodly.”

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
