Jesus had a job to do

(Continued)

MOORE —

Maybe there’s one more “job” that tops them all. Technically, I’m not sure it was a job, but The Father’s request. How would you feel if you were asked to leave heaven and all its glory and become a mere mortal man? But wait. It gets better. Not only do you have to give up everything, but you are told the people will reject you, criticize and mock you. Then here comes the big whammy — you learn as part of this plan you have to die on the cross.

But Jesus willingly did so just because He loved us so much. He could have told His Heavenly Father “No, I’m not going to go through with this,” but that wasn’t the way it happened. He was obedient until the end. He had a job to do. Save the world.
