JESUS DYING FOR OUR SINS WAS ALL ABOUT LOVE FOR US: "Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair," G.K. Chesterton. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life," John 3:16.
For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blamelessin his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will. - Ephesians 1:4-5
In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 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 4:9-10)
