A Love That Doesn’t Sense

It’s easy to love others when they treat you well, when they do what you want, and when they love you back.  But what about when people treat you like garbage, when they don’t do what you want, and when they hate you?  Obviously, this doesn’t make sense.

Christmas is all about a love that doesn’t make sense.

Why in the world would God send His Son to save people who sin, who hate, and who continue to do everything contrary to His Law?

But this is just what He did.

It doesn’t make sense to me.  Does it make sense to you?

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:6-8
