“Let us mark what kind of Being the Redeemer of mankind must need to be, in order to provide eternal redemption for sinners.  If no one less than the Eternal God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, could take away the sins of the world, sin must be a far more abominable thing in the sight of God than most men suppose.  The right measure of sin’s sinfulness is the dignity of Him who came into the world to save sinners.  If Christ is so great, then sin must indeed be sinful.” J.C. Ryle from expository thoughts on the Gospel of John
