I sometimes wonder why Christmas is a bigger celebration than Easter.
Obviously, Easter could not have happened without the birth of Christ, so it is a very very wonderful thing.
Yet, the birth of that child in a stable would have just been another birth, if it were not for what He did later in life.
He atoned for our sins.
He made it possible for us to return and live with Him and our Heavenly Father again.
He died, so that we could live.
"And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus...
Behold, two men stood by them in shining garments...
They said unto them,
Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but he is risen."
-Luke 24: 2-6
