Sacrificing Self for Another

Deliverance from the Penalty and Power of Sin (p. 16)

"One day the people of a southern town were startled by the sight of a runaway team attached to a carriage. Clinging desperately to the reins was a man being trampled beneath the hoofs of the horses. He stopped the horses but at the cost of his life. A needless sacrifice, thought the people, till they discovered in the carriage his little child unharmed. He gave up his life for his little one because he loved it. Who can say the sacrifice was too great? How feeble the comparison of this love with that of God who gave His Son to die for a world at enmity with Him!"
