Man is Not Worthy
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6 KJV)
God did not send His Son to die for you and me because we were naturally valuable. Or because we were good and moral upstanding citizens. God sent His Only Son to die for mankind because He loves all mankind unconditionally. He loves man though he naturally lacks having anything good and lovely about himself.
The truth is Jesus Christ willingly came to this earth to die because man was not worthy. God loves all mankind despite his natural bent towards sin and wickedness.
Man cannot possibly help himself with his despicably dark spiritual heart condition because the natural man is born with a righteousness problem. It was necessary for mankind to have a perfect sacrifice, a permanent “spiritual scrub,” or sanctification only the perfect shed blood sacrifice God could provide with the substitutionary death of His Son.
Only Jesus Christ could provide a perfect sacrifice for man’s sin.
Nobody else could fill the spiritual gap that naturally exists between God and man. Only God could remove the nature of sin which creates a huge divide between God and man.
