Romans 5:08 - God's Love Demonstrated Bookmark

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (KJV)
 
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (NASB)
 
But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (NLT)
 
But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (NET)

It is good to point out here that it is sinners who are reconciled by Christ's death. The sin is ours not God's!  Our sin is apparent and God's answer is Christ!  He has set this act of His mercy in His light so that all whom He draws to Himself will be able to see. The word here translated (commendeth - demonstrates - showed) literally means to "stand with." Figuratively meaning to make known and conspicuous.  Christ was made to be seen by all as the "way, the truth, and the life."

So we praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to His dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins. He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. (Ephesians 1:6-8 NLT)
