Jesus was born to die. Though he himself was God, he came to earth and became a man and lived a life of service, humility and self- sacrifice amongst us. He was the “boss” of all life, but he came undercover as a human in order to save humanity. He led his life in such a way that it set an example for all of us who desire to live with and for him. The example of how to carry our cross in this life so that we can truly be exalted in the next.
