5:6 Christ died. The nature of this outpoured love (v. 5) is seen in the Cross. There God acted “at the right time,” both in the sense that the death of Christ took place according to the divine timetable (John 17:1; Acts 2:23; Gal. 4:4), and also because it meets us in the moment of our deepest need. This is Paul’s point when he says “still weak” (v. 6), “still sinners” (v. 8), “while we were enemies” (v. 10).
