9. Romans 3:25 Propitiation (atonement) by His blood

Greek Word: ἱλαστήριον pronounced hilastêrion is also used in the Septuagint for the mercy seat, the lid covering the Ark of the Covenant, upon which sacrificial blood was sprinkled as an atonement for sin. While it might be said that this passage means “Jesus is our mercy seat,” it probably has the more straightforward idea of propitiation – a substitute sacrifice. Guzik

 “The word in its classical form was used of the act of appeasing the Greek gods by a sacrifice . . . in other words, the sacrifice was offered to buy off the anger of the god.” Wuest

NIVsacrifice of atonement

Living Bible — to take the punishment for our sins.

“. . . only God could find a way to be both just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” Guzik

10. God loved us so much, He paid His perfect Son for us.

It was through His sacrificial death that our sins were atoned. But He did not stop there—He died for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2 Voice

Justice required a sacrifice, so God provided one. 

We mean that much to Him.

The Lyrics of an old song, My Tribute by André Crouch, come to mind:

How can I say thanks for the things
You have done for me?
Things so undeserved yet you gave
To prove your love for me
The voices of a million angels
Could not express my gratitude
All that I am, and ever hope to be
I owe it all to thee

To God be the glory, to God be the glory
To God be the glory for the things he has done
With his blood he has saved me
With his power he has raised me
To God be the glory for the things he has done
Just let me live my life and
Let it be pleasing Lord to thee
And if I gain any praise, let it go to Calvary
With his blood he has saved me
With his power he has raised me
To God be the glory for the things he has done
