Romans 5:8 ” But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

In I John there are two Scriptures that can help us understand this Verse. The first is I John 3:16, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.”, and a little farther in I John 4:10, “This is love: Not that we loved God, but that He loved us…” Yes, God loves you for you…and Jesus’ self-sacrifice on the Cross was not because of your righteousness but because of your sinfulness. That’s because God sent Jesus to take your place, in order to turn away God’s righteous anger and satisfy His demands of justice. God loves you for you…looking beyond who you are, to who you can become through Him.
