4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
God’s love and mercy are unlimited. There is no way humanly to pay the penalty for sin. That’s because the penalty for even one sin is death. That’s the minimum amount of sin that makes you need salvation through Jesus sacrificial death. But the Father in His love and mercy also put no maximum limit on the amount or types of sin that we could commit and still be saved by His son Jesus’ sacrifice.
In His love and service,
