Are You Ungodly And Is There Hope?

If a person is ungodly is there any hope for them to escape God's judgment? The Bible offers hope.

For while we were still helpless at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6.

Our sin makes us helpless.  This is helplessness before the eternal all righteous judge. We are all helpless because God is holy and he must have a holy standard; such a standard would be too high for any one. So if you lived a thousand years and only did one sin you would be helpless. (Adam had only one command, he broke it and was cast out of the garden and the effects of sin began the decay of death in him.)

Our sin deserves judgment and punishment but Our Father in Heaven is loving and instead of condemning us for eternity he took our place. God became a man we know as Jesus who was righteous and lived a life without sin. Having no sin to answer for he could offer his perfect life up for us.

The simplest way to think of this word is to think of it meaning the opposite of what God is. We were opposed to God in nature and our actions even our inactions.

If a person is ungodly there is hope since this verse says specifically that The Lord died for him. If God loves him enough to die for him then he loves him enough to accept him. The gospel is available to him and he may yet be a saint.
