The Power of God`s Love
I know of a professor. He was an atheist, pretty hostile to Christianity. But then his life started to fall apart. His wife left him, and his career was sagging, he kind of hit the skids. One day he was in a public restroom and on the floor near the sink was one of those little Christian pamphlets. It wasn't a fancy academic argument, just a simple tract called ?The Four Spiritual Laws.? The first line of that pamphlet reads, ?God loves you, and he has a wonderful plan for your life.? The professor could not get past that first line. It moved him to tears. He was captivated by the thought of a God who loved him enough to die for him and could do something with the mess that his life was in. That started a very, very long search for this man, which eventually led to him becoming a Christian. Out of that he began to realize that he didn't have to impress God the way he had to impress his academic colleagues. That freed him from some of his workaholism. It helped him to see the mistakes and sins he'd made in the past, and how God could help him recover from those. It changed his life. At a time when he was in no position to feel proud and wise, he was in a bathroom after all, our foolish God got hold of this foolish man through a simple little tract, and showed him that being a fool for Christ is the wisest thing you could ever do. That's the power of the gospel.

Demonstration of Gods love
GOD'S love for us is so great that HE was willing to send HIS only begotten SON to die on the cross for all our sins.  HE loves us so much that HE created us in HIS own image.  There is nothing that HE want do for us if we only trust and believe in HIM .  It only takes the faith of a mustard seed the smallest seed of them all.  Then all we have to ask in the name of JESUS. How HARD CAN THAT BE?  To know that a GOD  so powerful could love us in spite of all of our short comings, sins, transgressions and we will never be perfect.

If we were "we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son" why do we need to do anything?

Righteousness is given by God, that we are able to stand in front of Jesus and God.
James3:2 If a man does not make mistake in his word he is a perfect man, who is able to control his whole body. Jesus said His teaching is not from His own, but from the Father who sent Him. Only the mysteries of God will make you live. A bad tree will bear bad fruit. Signs and teachings from Above follow those who truly love Jesus, and do what He says to do.

"For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person - though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we were sinners Christ died for us. Much more surely then, now that we have been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more surely, having been reconciled, will be saved by his life. But more than that, we even boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation." ( Romans 5:6-11)

"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." ( Romans 8:38-39)

"But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, in order to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as children." ( Galatians 4:4-5)

"He destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and insight he has made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth in Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to gather up all things in him, things in heaven and things on hearth. In Christ we have also obtained an inheritance, having been destined according to the purpose of himwho accomplishes al things according to his counsel and will, so that we, who were the first to set our hope on Christ, might live for the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in hijm, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit; this is the pledge of our inheritance toward redemption as God's own people, to the praise of his glory." ( Ephesians 1:5-14)

"But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ - by grace you have been saved - and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus." ( Ephesians 2:4-7)

"I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." ( Ephesians 3:18-19)

"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." ( Ephesians 5:1-2)
