19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:19-21 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/rom.5.19-21.KJV
Jesus went to the cross, knowing the punishment that was ahead of Him in order to save us from our sins. Why? Because He loved us before we were lovable…that’s why!
