Jesus came to teach us what it means to be fully human, to live the life God intended for us to live. Where we got it wrong, he got it right and showed us the way. Too often, Jesus’ humanity has been minimized, but the truth is that it is precisely because he was human, just like you and I, that the Gospel is so compelling. God, because of his great love for us, came to be with us.
This Sunday we continue our Advent series, All of the Above, looking at the roles Jesus has fulfilled and still fulfills – as High Priest to free us from shame, as King to give us unity and strength, as Prophet to give us direction, as a Human who walks with us, and as the God who saves us.
