But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
When we were at our worst, God gave us His best. All forms of human love have some measure of self interest attached. The Greek New Testament language provides us understanding of the nuances of love. Eros-love brings the mutual satisfaction of physical love. Phileo-love enables people to share friendship affections. To describe God’s love, the Holy Spirit inspired the human Bible writers to use a term rarely employed by the Greeks—Agape, unconditional love. Nothing displays this word like Jesus dying for us on the cross while we were still in rebellion.
