The Extent of God’s Love for Sinners


ESV Romans 5:6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person– though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die–
8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom. 5:6-8 ESV)


Passage reveals three aspects of Christ’s death and how they reveal the extent of God’s love for sinners:

  1. Backdrop of Christ’s Death
  2. Brilliance of Christ’s Death
  3. Benefiters of Christ’s Death
