How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.
Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them.

But what are you supposed to do to those who love you? Hate them?
Oh, it's a Bible verse!!! Nevermind. Here's my take. I think you're supposed to assume that Luke was talking about merit in heaven. I'm guessing he meant that there's nothing wrong with loving those who love you, but you gain more merit by loving those who hate you. Am I right? Before I realized it was a Bible verse, it kinda threw me there. Sorry :)
