Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. Romans 5:6
God’s timing is perfect: We were weak and helpless because we could do nothing on our own to recover from our addictive and compulsive behaviors and attitudes. We had to be rescued. Jesus came at exactly the right time – according to God’s plan.
God controls the timing and methods of our recovery. He also controls the results.
