We all have a role in this world. We are destined for something in life. Jesus’ destiny was to fulfill God’s plan to save the humanity. There were many instances in His life when he could have died. But he didn’t. He had a different purpose.
On the cross Jesus was 100% human and 100% God. His ‘humanness’ was most visible in Gethsemane where Jesus asked if there was other alternative to dying on the cross. He submitted to God’s plan.
Jesus had to become a thing he hated the most – the sin – in order to overcome it.
