Communicates the depth of His love
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8 (NIV)
Some may die for a close relative or maybe a really nice person might die for a total stranger. But no one would die for those who spit on them, denied them or even worse hated them. His holy jealousy is right, because He didn’t give people what their sins deserved.
