Most of us have fantasies, at least from time-to-time, of becoming great, of making history in some way. This, however, was no concern of Jesus Christ. His only desire, to serve God and man, was completely devoid of magnifying popularity and fame. Instead, it was entirely rooted in love. Lifting the feeble knees, and the heads that hung low, is what He was all about. He did not do it to feel important, nor did He do it for the praise. He was full of humility, and a sincere desire to do His Father's will. So strong was His love, that even His worst enemies, were subjects of both His prayers, and of His complete and instant forgiveness. Truly, this Man was noble above all, even the literal Son of God. He suffered grief, and pain, beyond comprehension, deliberately, patiently, and with a merciful acknowledgement that if He did not, we ourselves would instead be doomed to suffer, for an infinity of years. His mission, was to go far beyond even the impossible feat of living a perfect life. It was also to bare each of our burdens of guilt, and of sickness, and of pain. This great, and atoning sacrifice, was our saving grace. All He expects in return, is that we do our best to repent, to follow His example, and to help others to do the same.
In what ways, can we more effectively do these three things?
