Summary: We come to live and death ends our work. But Jesus came to die to give us real life. The innocent takes the punishment of the guilty.
“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him. For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life.”- Romans 5:8-10
