Why through the death of His own son Christ

I asked God why
if He’s so perfect
did He have to use death for Christ

It just didn’t seem right
that a perfect God would have to do that

i mean i knew that a price had to be paid for sin
since there is justice, and I knew that Christ laid down his life in love
but I still questioned God as to why
why couldn’t He figure out another way
that didn’t use death

the next morning I woke up
and the Lord was telling me
not to doubt Him so much
and He answered me

God used the death of Christ
not just for justice and to show love
but to show that Christ could beat the grave
and without death
that wouldn’t have been possible

and so i told God
yes, Lord, I understand now
your plan was perfect
