..but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners. Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

The gospel is this.. we are not loved because we are intrinsically lovely or because we have made ourselves worthy of love. We are loved because Jesus died for us when we were unattractive to make us attractive.” Tim Keller
