God saves because He is a God of love. God John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” Romans 5:6 – “For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Christ dying on the cross is God’s expression of love towards sinners. It was an expression of love because it was done to resolve man’s greatest problem, the problem of sin. Because of Adam, every man who was ever created by God was born with a sinful nature. And it’s not that we can blame Adam completely because scripture says that every man chooses for himself to turn away from God. And the justice of God declares that the person who sins must die. The wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself. That’s Ezekiel 18:20.
