Jesus is the Triune God’s only plan to save humanity. This plan was determined before the beginning of time. A Body was prepared for the Word. The Son of God became the Son of Man fulfilling that plan and doing the will of the Father in the power of the Spirit. Through his life in the Body, Jesus is the “vicarious human,” showing what it means to be made “in the image of God.” That Body is birthed in the Christmas story, sacrificed in the Easter story, shared in the Church story, and displayed in glory at his Second Coming and Resurrection. We (Christians) join Jesus, as members of his Body living his Body-life and participating in his mission and life of love on earth in this amazing, inclusive, beautiful salvation story!
