Read Romans 5:6-11 and tell me in just a few words what you get and how it makes you feel. Have fun and dig deep.
I think it illustrates the enormity and inconceivable (in human terms) level of love that GOD has for us.
We can all relate to a person sacrificing their life to protect their family or their homeland, but can't really conceive of a person who would willingly sacrifice his life to save the life of a sworn enemy who hates him.
Jesus didn't die for the righteous, He died for the Adolf Hitlers, the Saddam Husseins, the Osama bin Ladens, the Jeffrey Daumers, the Charles Mansons, the Pol Pots, etc. We were no better than any of those "monsters" before coming to faith in Christ.
