We were dead and hopeless in sin. But because of his grace, Jesus died in our place as a perfect and worthy sacrifice. The atonement shows the love of God, that he made a way for undeserving people to be with Him. But it also shows the justice of God. That there were in fact sins to be atoned for. Without justice and a tremendous cost of sin, the atonement of Christ makes no sense. We see the cost of sin and the wrath of God for sin on the cross.
