Because He loves men

My dear friend there has been much rightly said about the glory of God, about God doing everything for His own glory - that is so true. About Christ in a sense dying for God, for the glory of God. That is true out of the mouth of a wise theologian. But some of our younger brethren who say these things forget that the same Christ who died for the glory of God died because He loves men. You throw that out of the equation, my friend, and you’ve lost the gospel.

-Paul Washer from his sermon The Lost Gospel

Would not the statement that our love for God is equal to our love for our fellow men also apply to Jesus Christ? Is it not through atoning for us--and demonstrating that love--that Christ exemplifies His love for The Father?
