"Now hope does not disappoint, because the
love of God
has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
For when we were still without strength, in due time
Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But
God demonstrates His own love
toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:5-8).
Helpless sinners. Unrepentant rebels. "In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins" (1 John 4:10).

Offering the sacrifice of life. Accepting the wages of death. Christ did this for someone who did not love God.

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.
When I was sinking down beneath God’s righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.
