Jesus is God the Father in human form. He is both God and Man; the Son of God who became the Son of Man by choice.
God the Father gave Jesus a mandate with three distinct assignments in two comings to earth.
Jesus as the Lamb of God made Himself of no reputation. He was obedient to the Father’s will.
Jesus endured the Cross because of the joy that was set before Him. Obedience to the will of the Father is the assurance for fulfilling destiny.
To know Jesus is to follow His footsteps. To reign with Him one must be prepared to carry the designated cross and suffer as He suffered.
Followers of Christ are enjoined to emulate His exemplary life on earth.
