I hope this is the right place to post this.
This question probably has a Baltimore Catechism answer, but why did Jesus die for us? I know it was to cleanse us of our sins. But, why does he loves us more than a bird or cat etc.?
Why would his greatest act of love be pointed at us? What makes us his object of affection? Why did God make man higher than the animals? Is it because we have intrinsic worth of some kind? Sorry if this is a weird question! :o
