Jesus came to Earth to prove God’s love in a way that we would understand. If He had come down just as a deity in all his glory and power then we may be able to dismiss Him not being able to truly know what it is to be human. His humanity is what makes his willingness to give his life for us so compelling. His actions are a model for what our lives as Christians should look like. When we become Christ-followers we give up our old lives and begin living new God-inspired lives!
For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
~ Romans 6:4 [NLT]
