Take a few moments, and let this sink in.

Think about this. If the bridge tender had spared his son, maybe all of the people would have been killed. Some might have lived. By sacrificing his son all the people on the train were saved.

If God had spared His Son, all people would suffer eternal death. "there is none righteous" Even though His Son gave His life not all will accept the sacrifice and be saved.

That was soooo moving. I remember reading that but have not seen that movie. We forget what that must have been like for God to give his only son. What a sacrifice for us all. We need to just dwell on that sometimes to see how much God must love us. And how we must respond...with love, thanksgiving, well lived lives, and the realization that we didn't deserve that since we were but sinners.
