Christ's birth was the ultimate act of creation, a true God-man was miraculously born. But his death 33 years later was the ultimate sacrifice, for the Son of God to lay down his life to pay the penalty for the sins of mankind! It was the only way we could ever be forgiven and overcome sin's rule over us...

Consider that no one in all of history has ever given up more or gone to such lengths for the sake of love.
